I used about 4 tbsp orange juice, cooked it up with a load of peppers, onions, onions and served it over brown rice. I used a can of water chestnut. minced some for the sauce and used more with the peppers, onions and mushrooms. I didn't have arrowroot, so I just used a touch more cornstarch. My boyfriend chowed down on this, he said that the batter chicken was a little lighter then Panda Express, but in a better way. I suppose if you wanted it lighter you could use rice flour instead to make more of a light tempura like batter. The only thing he says is missing is that Panda Express Garnishes with Sesame Seeds... I really enjoyed this. A little more labor intensive then I would want to take on for the work week, but a wonder weekend meal.

Very Good! I made this using already cooked chicken strips, but battered the chicken, just didn't fry it quite as long. I also didn't let it marintate but about 30 minutes. I left out the minced water chestnuts and arrowroot powder, but otherwise followed it exactlyl.It still came out delicious. I served this over white rice. Thank you Mysterygirl!
