I loved this recipe! I did cut back on the sugar.This is just as good as takeout! Thanks for posting the recipe!
We really enjoyed this dish! I scaled it back for 2 - sort of. I used 1 large chicken breast and 1/2 of all the remaining ingredients. I also added some broccoli because it was there. :) I was able to use less than a cup of oil buy choosing a smaller skillet and shallow frying the chicken pieces turning them once and doing them in 2 batches keeping the first in a warm oven while the second cooked. I wasn't sure about the batter but I'm sold! I used a whisk to blend the bisquick, sesame and water mixture and the batter was very smooth. I don't keep bisquick in the house so I made up a recipe of Bisquick Clone and that worked like a charm. For our tastes I will cut back quite a bit on the sugar next time. The manadrin juice was fairly sweet by itself so for us I would probably only add a tbsp of the brown sugar. Its a great sweet and sour type sauce.sauce. Thanks so much for posting, I will definately make this again.
i wanted to make asian food for dinner when i came across this recipe! i love mandarins so i had to try it! and im glad i did! it was a great recipe and i've never tried anything like it! i love the idea of cooking with the mandarin juice! its pretty easy to make too! only thing i had trouble with was the bisquick mix! it wouldnt smooth out for me and got gunky so my chicken ended up frying together but the taste was still great! and i didnt see it in the steps, but i ended up throwing my mandarin orange segments into the mix at the end which was really yummy! great recipe thou! i'll def b making this again!
