Hubby liked it too and he was also happy he didn’t have to slice anything, as he will be in his sling for another four weeks after shoulder surgery, which means another month of one-armed meals. His doc won’t start physical therapy yet, so we need to make things that are easy for him to eat. And tasty too. This mandarin orange chicken fit the bill on that one!
