Oh, YUMM it was good!! and Hubby gave his approval!
Mandarin Fruit sauce

3/4c orange juice
1 1/2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
1 T cornstarch (I added a little more)
2 T brown sugar
3/4 tsp ginger
a few marashino cherries, sliced
Drain oranges and reserve liquid. Combine andarin orange liquid with orange juice, soy sauce and lemon juice in saucepan. Mix cornstarch, ginger,and brown sugar and add to the liquid; cook, stirring constantly until thickened. Fold in oranges and cherries. Stuff the rabbit breast cavity with your favorite stuffing and place in roaster pan or dutch oven with other rabbit pieces, Pour sauce over rabbit pieces and bake in oven on med. heat (325-350) for 2 hrs, basting occasionally. Take lid off roaster the last 20 mins. Enjoy!! I am sure this could also be used nicely with skinless chicken breasts.
