An Un-peel-ievably Delicious Orange Chicken Recipe!

~

Hello everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog, I hope you guys had an amazing week! So, a few days ago, I was craving some orange chicken and I decided to make it at home. It turned out delicious… it had the sweet but spicy thick sauce and a very refreshing flavor from the freshly squeezed orange juice.

Let’s get started:

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 whisked eggs
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup white, granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. grated ginger & garlic
  • 1-2 tsp. chili flakes
  • orange zest (use from squeezed orange)
  • optional: lemon, paprika, onion powder, spring onion.

Equipment:

  • cutting board & knife
  • 3 large bowls, 1 small bowl
  • 1 mixing spoon & 1 small spoon
  • measuring cups & spoons
  • 1 spatula/ serving spoon
  • pan (suitable for deep frying)
  • large plate & paper towels
  • large pan

Steps:

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces.
  2. In one bowl whisk together the two eggs. Add some lemon, paprika and onion powder (optional). Sprinkle some salt and pepper, and add in the chicken pieces.
  3. In the second bowl, mix the flour and cornstarch together. Add some salt and pepper as well.
  4. At this point, I would recommend using one hand to deal with the eggs, and the other hand for the flour/cornstarch coating. Maybe even using a fork.
  5. Coat each chicken piece with the dry mixture, and set it aside.
  6. Next, in a pan, heat up some vegetable oil for deep frying. Once the oil is hot enough, toss 6-8 chicken pieces at a time.
  7. Once they are a light, golden brown, set them to cool on a plate with paper towels.
  8. In a second pan, stir together: orange juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and chili flakes on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  9. In a small bowl, mix about 1-2 tbsp. of cornstarch with water, so that it forms a consistent slurry.
  10. Add this to the orange sauce and mix together. Stir the sauce together for 5-10 minutes.
  11. Once the sauce has thickened, add in the orange zest and stir. Lastly, add the chicken, and stir so that the sauce coats all the pieces evenly.
  12. Serve it in a plate and top it off with some finely chopped green onions (optional).
  13. Enjoy! I had this with some noodles, but I think it would taste amazing with fried rice too.
