I leave the peels on the oranges in this recipe because I'm a fan of umami* flavours. If you want to knock out the bitterness, simply remove the orange peels in this recipe. If you like your orange chicken sweet like at Chinese restaurants, add one tablespoon of brown sugar to the saucepan when making the glaze at the end.
*Umami is the marriage of sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness in food.
