Orange Chicken

I found this on pinterest.com. It comes from a blog called thenoshery.com. Although it can take a while to fry up the chicken bites, it was definitely worth it.

Chicken

  • 2 lb boneless chicken, cut into cubes
  • 1 1⁄2 cups corn starch
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 1⁄2 cups milk, or 2 eggs
  • 1⁄4  teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4  teaspoon pepper
  • vegetable oil (for frying)

Orange Sauce

  • 11⁄2 cups water
  • 1⁄4 cup orange juice
  • 1⁄3 cup rice vinegar
  • 21⁄2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1⁄2  teaspoon ginger
  • 1⁄2  teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons water

Prepare 3 bowls: one of milk or egg, one of cornstarch, salt and pepper, and one of panko bread crumbs. Dip the chicken in the milk, dredge in cornstarch, re-dip in milk, then dredge in panko bread crumbs. Heat a pan of oil and fry the chicken until all is cooked. In a large saucepan, combine 11⁄2 cups water, orange juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce. Blend well on medium heat for a few minutes. Add in brown sugar, orange zest, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes; bring to a boil. Finally, combine the corn starch and water and slowly stir it into the sauce until it thickens. Pour over breaded chicken.
