Just Like Panda Express Orange Chicken

Our family enjoys Panda Express from time to time, we would rather be able to cook like Panda Express and stay home – – so try this recipe found at The Family Kitchen

1 1/2   lbs chicken breast, uncooked
3   well beaten eggs
2   Tbsp. milk
1  Cup cornstarch
Salt & Pepper to taste

Slice chicken into bite-sized pieces. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, coat in cornstarch, then dip again in egg mixture. (It’s really important to follow that order!  Egg-cornstarch-egg.  Doing so creates a tempura-like batter.

Fry in oil heated over a medium or medium-high stove, until lightly browned on both sides. Remove and allow to cool on a paper towel before transferring to a cookie sheet.

To cook, make sure chicken pieces are in a single layer on cookie sheet, coat with orange sauce and bake according to directions below.

Orange Sauce

1/2  Cup soy sauce
1/4  Cup catsup
1/2   Cup honey
1/4   Cup orange juice concentrate
2   Tbsp. white vinegar
1   Tbsp. dried chives
1   Tbsp. red pepper flakes
1   Tbsp. sliced almonds

In a medium saucepan, combine soy sauce, catsup, honey, orange juice concentrate, chives and red pepper flakes. Stir together over medium heat and bring just to a boil. Drizzle sauce over fried chicken. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, stirring often to coat the chicken with the glaze.

Remove from oven when glaze is no longer puddled around the chicken, it should be sticky and fully coating the chicken.

Garnish with chives or chopped scallions, red pepper flakes, orange zest, and sliced almonds.

Serve immediately over sticky rice.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
