Has no taste because there is no orange in the orange sauce. I went to a different recipe to get one that has orange taste
Anyone know the nutritional information for this recipe?
I have never cooked chicken like this before or ever tried deep frying and I love how the chicken turned out. I didnt use jasmine rice I just ate it with some microwave rice. My dog really loved the smell and barked at me when I warmed up the leftovers the next day. I had given him a couple pieces the night before...haha. He also got a hold of my boyfriend's leftovers and ate the chicken from there, but left the rice. Yes, the instructions have a major typo in them, but this recipe helped me so much to start cooking asian food. It was kind of tiring since I made a lot of chicken pieces but it was worth it to have at least 6 servings of Asian chicken.
I'm not sure what the reviewers were talking about when describing the breading process as a wet coating, it clearly states put chicken in a bowl se aside, in medium bowl stir egg salt and oil mix well set aside next stir half cup cornstarch and flour next coat chicken in egg mixture then coat pieces in with flour mixture, nowhere could I find that you mix egg mixture and flour mixture together to make a wet batter for coating the chicken
Oh my goodness this was fantastic. I altered the recipe a tiny bit- I used garlic infused oil to my wok and shallow-fried the chicken pieces instead of deep frying, and I added some Mae Ploy Sweet Chilli Sauce to the orange sauce to give it a little more kick.
The instructions are not quite clear, but I think I've figured it out. Three bowls. Chicken in one. Egg mixture in the second and flour/cornstarch mixture in the third. Most experience cooks would figured this out.
This recipe has to have the worst directions ever. Dip the chicken first in the egg mix, then the flour/cornstarch,then fry Also it tastes nothing at all like Panda express. This has way more vinegar & is a lot spicier. It was good, just nothing like I was expecting. Also not hard, once you decipher the instructions. Be sure to prep everything & have all your ingredients on hand first. I doubled the sauce and it was way dry. Next time I will quadruple the sauce, as I like some over my rice. The flavor was pretty good & I will be making it again, with modifications. And you can skip the "flour mixture" & just use cornstarch if you want. You could even skip the egg part as long as you season your chicken--I don't think it added anything. Tastes the same...
I had to do a lot of tweaking. Brown sugar, orange peel and zest, doubled the sauce, dipped in egg first then in corn starch. Next time I will use a lot less vinegar or just frozen oj. In the end it was a good place to start.
This is the best orange chicken recipe iv ever tried and a staple in our home since my kids keep asking about it! Follow the recipe step by step, you can go easy on the chili if you like if you dont want it too spicy but other than that its delicious!
Excellent recipe, I Changed the white vinegar to balsamic vinegar and added roasted cashews. This is absolutely awesome everyone at work loved it!
