You may want to try one of these:


i will check those out. ok, turn about is fair play.

cheap orange chicken:

get a bird (if inners are in, take them out an feed them to the cat or dog...save neckboned for something else)

get a jar a tang

get a brown n bag

rinse and dry off the bird inside and out.

sprinkle tang in side and out (i find it easiest to do all this with bird inside bag.

tie up the bag. put it in the oven. cook.

the tang orange flavor will cook thru and it will be lovely.


ooooo, just read thru both...they look good! when my dh lets me have my wheelchair back, i may have to make some.
