Orange Mango Chicken Recipe

Instead of juicing the orange and then adding in a thickener (cornstarch is what is used most-which is not considered whole), I used the whole orange and even 1/2 of a mango. I’m sure 1 1/2 orange would work as well. The fiber from the fruits thicken the sauce up just fine.

I have also used this recipe with honey and maple syrup and they both work equally well.

Hope you enjoy this!
