      Your orange chicken sounds delicious. Orange with anything is good - orange juice, orange zest, concentrate . . . sweet and tangy at the same time.

      Your recipes sound delicious and simple enough that most people will be able to prepare them. I particularly like the sound of the peach one - I have never tried chicken with peaches before. It never ceases to amaze me how versatile chicken truly is.
