Orange Chicken

This past Wednesday for our mutual activity, the Young Women made Orange Chicken together. I found the recipe on Sparkrecipes. It's healthy, easy, and delicious. It did take longer than I'd expected, but I mostly chalk that up too many cooks in the kitchen (especially inexperienced cooks).
