Orange Chicken

Chicken Recipe

Who doesn’t like Orange Chicken, especially the ones you can get in the Chinese takeaways, right? When we lived in Atlanta there was one such eatery at the nearby mall I used to visit quite a few times every month just for that gooey but crunchy deliciousness. I knew it was LOADED in sugar but boy! It was so addictive. This is a much lighter version of that but is delicious in itself. There is no corn syrup or msg used here to enhance flavors- when you make fresh food, you don’t need to enhance anything! Happy cooking and eating @sarchakra


Method


Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add rice flour. Mix gently to coat the chicken.

Heat peanut oil. Fry the chicken for a few minutes on high heat.

Add ginger, garlic and chopped fresh chilies.

In a bowl add orange juice, hoisin, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Mix.

Add the sauce into the chicken. Add ½ cup of water. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook till the chicken is done.

Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
