I love orange chicken and I almost always order # 14 Orange Chicken when we order Chinese take out and I wondered to myself if I could make it better at home. This recipe most definitely delivered! Ha ha Chinese food…delivered….get it? Am I a dork?
The sauce is sweet, tangy, there is no lack in orange flavor and the red pepper flakes give it just a touch of heat. I thought I would dredge the chicken in corn starch instead of flour to keep it light and also in panko breadcrumbs to give it a little crunch. It was the right call, the chicken came out lightly breaded and still held up a bit of a crunch when tossed in the sauce. Delicious!
