This was the most delicious thing I've ever made! I made a few adustments, though, a lower fat version. I pounded out the chicken, and used 1/4 cup of flour and didn't even use all of it. I seasoned the flour with salt and pepper. I sprayed the pan generously with Pam and sprayed the side of chicken facing up, after I put the chicken in the pan. I fried the chicken til done and removed them.I added 1/4 cup of triple sec orange liquor to deglaze the pan,and added 1/4 cup heavy cream and 1/4 fat free milk. I added a splash of the lite syrup from the oranges, and 1/4 cup of OJ. I used an 11oz. can of mandarin oranges, (the whole can, drained)I reduced it a little bit. I served it with broccoli and brussel sprouts and wide egg noodles. Yum Yum! p.s. I also added more salt, it needs salt!

If you like a very delicate orange flavor then this recipe as it stands is for you. My family and I enjoyed it but were a little disapointed. I will try it again with some additions. Perhaps some orange juice concentrate and adding a splash of the orange liqueur at the end of cooking. On the whole a nice recipe but it "needs something" as my husband said.
