This recipe has potential, but it did not taste very authentic. If I make it again, I will omit the flour because it made the chicken a bit "mushy" and the sauce too thick.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl mix together 3 tablespoons soy sauce, lemon juice, 1-2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic, 1/4 cup orange juice; add in the chicken cubes, toss to coat and refrigerate for 4-6 hours (no longer than 6 hours).
  2. Remove the chicken from the bowl then discard marinade (shake off any excess marinade from the chicken).
  3. Mix together flour and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, then add in the chicken cubes and toss to coat with the flour mixture.
  4. In a skillet heat butter with oil over medium heat; add in chicken cubes (in batches) and fry until the chicken is cooked through then remove to a plate or bowl.
  5. To the skillet add in hoisin sauce, 1/3 cup orange juice and green onion to the skillet and continue cooking over medium-low heat stirring with a wooden spoon to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet .
  6. Add the chicken back to the skillet along with mandarin orange segments and toasted cashews; toss until heated through.
  7. Serve over rice.
