Do you love Chinese cuisine? I do. And although many dishes from this cuisine are really delicious, my favorites remain the cashew chicken, the beef with broccoli, and the famous Chinese orange chicken.
Preparing Chinese orange chicken is, like any other Chinese dish, easy and rewarding. That is because Chinese recipes are always considered quick easy recipes that you can prepare in no time. And this Chinese orange chicken recipe is not an exception. While you cook your chopped chicken to perfection, boil your orange citrus sauce then pour it over the chicken cubes. Toss to coat the chicken and your meal is done. Making this plate for dinner cannot get any simpler.
The orange sauce that tops the chicken in this recipe cannot be described as less than mouthwatering. It gets you moved with its sweet, citrus tangy taste. And I guarantee you will be mind-blown once you crack the first bite of this crispy juicy sweet orange chicken. So, are you excited enough to learn how to prepare this mouthwatering Chinese orange chicken? Here is how!
Coated with a citrus savory sauce, this crispy Chinese orange chicken is just irresistible. To prepare it at home you need:
Like the majority of Chinese dishes, making this recipe at home is both healthy and quick. You will not need more than 20 minutes to put the ingredients of this dish together.
Rice or noodles? This is the dilemma. Noodles are always a great option to serve with Chinese dishes. However, a plate of egg-fried rice or boiled white rice makes a great option for a side dish. Both options will help you have a fulfilling Chinese meal for lunch or dinner.
If you want to go light and healthy, serve this orange chicken on a bed of green leaves or next to steamed spinach and sweet potato puree.
Like most of the dishes, this dish is best stored in an air-tight container to preserve the flavors of the ingredients. Store this dish in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
This sauce is orange and soy-based. The color of the soy sauce supersedes any other color leaving you with a brownish sauce. To have an orange color, you will have to add a few drops of food colorant. Nonetheless, you will still end up with a tasty orange flavor in your dish no matter the color.
