    Chef Lori L.'s Note:

    This is my low calorie version of certain fast food chains Orange Chicken. Most of the ingredients are "to taste", but this will give you the basic idea.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and chili flakes in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Add chicken pieces (either cut or whole).
    3. 3
      Marinate 4-6 hours minimum (you get more orange flavor the longer it marinates).
    4. 4
      *For whole chicken pieces, it can be grilled on a BBQ or in a skillet.
    5. 5
      *For cut chicken pieces, it works great as a stir-fry over rice. (NOTE: for cut/smaller pieces of chicken, marinate for for closer to 2-3 hours).

      Sprinkle chicken with sesame seeds and orange zest, serve and enjoy.

      This is a very good home made orange chicken. I did not see the marinade time so I boiled my chicken then cooked in the marinade and it turned out well. I could use it a little sweeter but there is so much individual taste that you have to decide what you like. I will try it with less sesame oi land soy sauce next time. Thanks for this Lori.

      This was a tad bit salty with the soy sauce. I'd put more orange juice and less soy. The chili flakes definitely give it a bite. I forgot the sesame seeds and orange zest and it was just fine. Made for Zaar Healthy Tag Game 2010.
