Chinese-Style Orange-Almond Chicken

I have posted this delicious-sounding way to cook chicken – which you can have on the table in forty minutes - in response to a Forum Request for a recipe for Chinese-style Orange Chicken. I have adapted it from Lisa Pettit’s recipe in Prevention Healthy Cooking's 'Eat Up, Slim Down: Tried-and-true recipes and tips from real weight-loss winners' by Jane Kirby and David Joachim. Commenting on this recipe, Lisa says “When I’m craving Chinese-style sweet-and-sour chicken but don’t want the calories or fat, I turn to this recipe”. If you want to increase the orange flavour, substitute some of the soy sauce for orange juice: perhaps half soy sauce and half orange juice. This is a combination that I know works well in my Veal With Orange Sauce Veal With Orange Sauce.
