Orange Ginger Chicken

Orange-Ginger-Chicken Last winter was pretty difficult for the Midwest. We had a series of storms that made driving conditions extremely difficult. My husband and I had the unfortunate opportunity of driving in one of those storms to visit our Aunt and Uncle. To our surprise when we arrived our Aunt had prepared a beautiful spread for us. One of my favorite dishes that she prepared was Orange Ginger Chicken. This chicken dish is sweet, spicy, and savory. Try this dish next time you are trying to take traditional chicken up a notch.
