So I used to work at an orange juice factory, but I got fired because I lost my concentration.  Orange y'all glad I didn't start this recipe off with a stupid joke about oranges?

Anyhoo, when I think of oranges I think of chicken.  And when I think of chicken I think of snow peas, white rice and black beans.  Don't ask me why, it's just how I roll.

Easy, quick and tasty, I give you Mandarin Orange Chicken.

Make it Tso.
