I'm the director of culinary innovation for Panda Express, here's how we're going to make the original orange chicken at home start with fried chicken which we are proud of that
We are going to make our orange chicken, these are the ingredients which we need for making orange chicken.
Coat the chicken with some flour mixture
First I am going to coat the chicken with some flour mixture, for that in a mixing bowl add one egg, b-big nicely, now I am going to add 1/2 kg of boneless chicken pieces, I have cut them into medium-sized pieces, mix the pieces with egg.
Now after mixing I am going to season with some salt and some pepper, mix it again, now to this I am going to add a quarter cup of cornstarch and a quarter cup of all-purpose flour, after adding the flour, mix it nicely, and coat the chicken pieces with the flour mixture.
Fry the chicken and make the orange sauce
Now after coating the chicken pieces, I am going to fry the chicken. Once the oil is nice and hot, place the chicken pieces one by one and fry until they are nice and crisp on the outside. Now the chicken pieces are nicely cooked, they are crispy on the outside. I am going to take it off from the oil.
After frying the pieces, let's make the orange sauce. For that heat some oil in a pan, now to this add 1 teaspoon of minced ginger, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, 1/2 a teaspoon of chili flakes, and give it a stir.
Next, I'm going to add one cup of orange juice, one tablespoon of soy sauce, one tablespoon of vinegar, 2 tablespoons of honey, you can also add sugar if you prefer, give it a stir, and let it cook for three to four minutes. Once the juice comes to a boil dissolve, one tablespoon of cornstarch with some water, and add it to the sauce to thicken the sauce, give it a stir, and also add some orange exist to get nice flavor and taste.
Mix and cook for a couple of minutes
Now you can see the orange sauce has thickened, it's time to add in the fried chicken. Add the chicken and coat the chicken pieces nicely with the sauce, and after mixing, cook this for a couple of minutes. Look at this our orange chicken is nice and done. Let's turn off the heat and I'm going to transfer this to a serving plate.
Finally, garnish with some sesame seeds and some chopped spring onions, that's it. Our orange chicken is ready to be served with a plate of rice. Do try this recipe at home.
