Orange Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves (diced into 1 – 1 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup chicken broth (low-sodium)
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest (finely, zest of 1 1/2 fairly large oranges)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger (dried)
  • 2 tablespoons yellow onion (grated, be sure to get some of the juices when measuring)
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce (optional)
  • white pepper (or Freshly ground black, to taste)
  • 1 1/4 cups cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 large eggs
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • green onions
  • sesame seeds
  1. To make this homemade Orange Chicken you marinate chicken pieces in a simple orange sauce, while setting aside 1/3 of the sauce and thickening it for coating at the end.
  2. Then you dredge the marinated chicken pieces in eggs followed by cornstarch and fry in hot oil until they’re perfectly golden brown and crisp.
  3. And you finish by coating them in orange sauce.
