My sauce looked nothing like your picture. It was very fluid. I had to make a slurry to thicken it, but it still was not super-thick. It had great flavor, though. Everyone liked how good it tasted.

What?! That's so easy! We eat Panda's like ALL the time. My kids love it. If I could learn to make their Orange Chicken, I would be the greatest Dad & Stepdad on the planet (at least in their eyes). Costco sells an orange chicken product, but it sucks =(
