If you’re a lover of Orange Chicken, you will love this! I recently saw a recipe on pinterest but was a little skeptical on the recipe. After reading the comments I searched the internet and came up with this. So glad I used orange zest instead of orange juice concentrate.
Thoroughly mix 1 egg white, 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp sugar. Add cut up chicken pieces (about a pound) and let marinate while you cook the orange sauce.
Combine in a bowl:
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/8 cup rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons seasame oil
- hot pepper flakes
Set your sauce mixture aside. In a pan heat up a couple of tablespoons of oil. When oil is hot add 1 tablespoon of orange zest and a tablespoon of chopped green onions. Only cook this for about 30 seconds, you don’t want to burn the orange zest. Add your sauce mixture stirring frequently until thick. About 15 minutes. Keep this on low while you fry your chicken.
Heat oil in another pan. Dredge your marinated chicken in cornstarch. (tip: shake chicken and cornstarch in a zip loc bag for easy clean up) Fry until golden brown and drain on a paper towel.
Mix with your thicken sauce and serve immediately. Goes great on white rice or fried rice on the side. Enjoy!
