This orange chicken is better than take out, I swear! And it’s so simple and easy to make. We used to have Chinese take out almost every week, that was before we moved into our first condo. Our favourite Chinese restaurant for take out did not deliver to our new address, and since we’ve moved again a little further, they are still out of reach.
We have tried different one’s in our new area, but none compare to the one we were used to for so many years (habits are truly hard to brake! ). So I decided to start making our own Chinese take out.
I have to admit though, it took me a little bit of time of trial and error to get some of the take out recipes just the way we like them, but now I’m happy to say that most of them are even better than the take out.
That is the case with this orange chicken, and best part of it, it’s so easy to make. Really, all you have to do is to cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces, roll them into the flour, egg wash and then flour again, then fry in a pan. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, then let reduce, toss in the chicken, and voila! Better than take out orange chicken!
