Random Recipe Monday - Sticky Chicken and Blood Orange Stirfry

I've been inspired by Kylie Kwong lately. I enjoy her Simply Magic show on the Discovery Home channel. She is an Australian chef of Chinese heritage and she demonstrates simple cooking methods, inspired by her heritage and her travels.

Chinese New Year is coming up on February 7th, and that is as good a reason as any to try out some different recipes. Chinese cooking is something that I haven't mastered - not even close. I never get the kind of results that I want and I'm frequently disappointed by how blah or uninspired my efforts turn out to be. I'm hoping to try some of Kylie's recipes, though it will be hard to find some that my picky family will like; Kylie uses plenty of seafood in her cooking.

You'd expect today's recipe to be one from Kylie, but no, I'm linking to a recipe that showcases blood oranges. I saw them at the grocery store yesterday and decided to pick some up without a recipe in mind. I found a recipe using ginger, honey and the blood orange juice that sounds interesting, so I'll be giving it a try.

For those who aren't familiar with blood oranges, they are a bit more bitter than the average orange. That should be tasty when paired with the sweet honey. We'll see.
