I think my kids could live on Panda Orange Chicken; and because there is one just down the road, they eat it a lot!  So when I spied this recipe to make a version at home I knew I couldn’t pass.  I love that this comes together and so fast and while it may not be quite as fast as the drive-thru, I feel like it’s much healthier!  My Panda-loving son thought it was great!
