Reviewed orange chicken

4 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

I made the orange chicken and I had a problem with the consistency of the batter. It was watery and did not stick to the chicken. Light meat was better tasting, I mixed it with the dark chicken thighs. I read the recipe before and during my cooking process. Next time I will thicken the batter. I also found the chicken to be greasy. The sauce we ...

I think most of us used the store bought crust. I find it to be too sweet. So when I make it again I will use less sugar. Check out the flour that was used.

Great pie. I made it and I find it is to sweet. There is a problem I think. I used the recipe from the Christmas cookbook. It said a 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar, and 1 cup syrup. I was looking on Pioneer woman blog and where she used 2 table spoons of brown sugar. So now I know I will use 1/2 white and 1/2 brown and that will be sweet...

You did not make the rosemary and chocolate chips cookie recipe. Try making them, they are okay and gives a different taste than the ordinary chocolate chip cookie. Try making the cookie according to the recipe first.

No matter what the brand, it should have not be loose for so many people in different locations. The preserves is already thick. When you cook blueberries they make more liquid. You will need to add a little something to help it thicken. I don't see how it is a five star.

What a mess. When I saw them making the cookie it looked nothing like a candy cane. The shape was like a child made it all by themselves. The recipe was not the best. I decided this is one cookie recipe I can do without.

I would love to see Trish cook alone instead of with someone all the time. This recipe is like Betty Crocker, only the cinnamon is different. I mixed it with clove to give it a better unusual flavor. There is a lot of shorten so I love to share these cookies. Please do something different with snickerdoodle cookies.

This cake was good, moist, but I could not taste a lot of honey. Next time I will leave out the lemon zest. It did take more than an hour to cook, more like 70 minutes, on the middle rack, at 350 degrees. "

This was a good muffing. I love blueberries and cornbread. Put them together with sugar and all is well. I served them as dessert with my meal of broil pork chops, green lima beans, and the family was pleased except for a disappointed Mexican rice dish belonging to Gina Neely. Make the muffins, you will love them. Thanks Giada."

I just made this rice dish and it was like eating fresh cilantro. I could not taste the one packet of Sazon seasoning. It must have been used for color only. I could not taste the onions, just cilantro. I can eat it but I won't make it again. Gina, Gina."

THIS WAS GREAT. I WOULD THINK THAT A GOOD COOK WOULD KNOW TO LAYER EACH INGREDIENT ON TOP OF THE OTHER. STOP CHANGING THE INGREDIENTS IF YOU HAVE NEVER MADE THE DISH, IT MAKES IT NOT THE REAL THING. YOU MAY USE LESS BUT USE THE EXACT INGREDIENT. YOU WILL THEN KNOW WHAT TO ADJUST THE NEXT TIME. THE ONLY THING THAT I SUGGEST IS TO BE CLEAN WITH YOUR"

I do like them. I enjoy watching the show and the family togetherness that it offers. To Gacook221, rethink what you are thinking about the show content. Those extras maybe needed to produce a good show. I do agree that there are shows with to much guest and not enough cooking, but this is not one of them. Keep cooking Ree and keep the family part"
