Orange Chicken (with Recipe)

by - August 13, 2020

Orange Chicken is a dish one does not easily come across in Indian Chinese restaurants. A mix of sweet, sour and spicy, this is actually a pretty easy dish to prepare and turns out, extremely tasty! I think it is the sweet part that puts some off, accustomed as we are to higher levels of spice in our dishes.

Anyway, I tried it out based on the original recipe by Panda Express and it was extremely flavourful and was great with fried rice. If you want to take a chance, here's the recipe below. 
Also, read up on 'velveting chicken' - the Chinese technique to tenderize chicken and make it moist and juicy for these kinds of dishes. It is simple, quicky and can make a big difference in the final outcome.
