Orange Chicken

This tangy, sweet and spicy Chicken taste simply superb.I tried it for the first time for my hubby's birthday.
 This recipe was shown on  TV in one of the cookery show  . I liked it  a lot so made some changes with the ingredients and made this. It tasted very nice.
  My hubby said it was  finger licking good. We had it with Herbed Garlic Rice It complimented the chicken very well. It tasted more better the other day.
 The recipe is very simple and gets ready quickly with some pre  preparation.It doesn't need any grinding or more of chopping .
For marinating chicken
1/2 kg boneless chicken
salt to taste
1 tsp pepper powder/to taste
