Chinese Orange Chicken

Submitted by: BUN3KIN

Introduction

Since traditional orange chicken is breaded and deep fried, I just use the sauce as a stir fry sauce and add a bunch of our favorite vegetables.

If you want to add more than 1 lb. of vegetables, I would double the sauce recipe.

Ingredients

    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2" pieces
    1 lb. vegetables of your choice

    Sauce:
    2 t orange zest
    1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (about what you would get from 1 large orange)
    1/2 t sugar
    2 T chicken stock
    1 T soy sauce
    1 T minced ginger root
    1 t minced garlic
    1 tbs. rice wine
    1/4 cup water

Directions

You can cook this a couple of different ways.

1) Stir fry the chicken and remove from wok. Stir fry the vegetables until crisp tender. Add chicken back to wok, reduce heat to medium-low, add sauce and cook until slightly thickened.

2) Grill or broil chicken. Steam or microwave vegetables until crisp tender. Add sauce ingredients to a sauce pan and cook over medium low heat until slightly thickened. Mix chicken, vegetables and sauce.

Serve with rice.

    I love orange chicken, but can't eat it becasue it's fried. This looks like a good alternative and tasty recipe. I am going to give it a try. - 1/9/09

  • I had a go at this recipe today- I added courgettes, bell peppers and mushrooms to the mix.
    Whilst I did enjoy it, it was slightly bland for my taste.
    I would make it again but next time I will add more veggies as I love my vegetables and double the sauce amount but with less water (1 measure). - 6/4/09
