Orange Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by evelynathens

This is a delicious recipe that needs to marinate overnight, but then comes together really quickly and deliciously.

This was a wonderful dish, Evelyn. I did add the zest of one orange to the marinade, which I think intensifies the flavor. The sauce is really savory, which I loved, since so many orange chicken recipes seem cloyingly sweet to me. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
