Oriental Orange Chicken
Total Time: 45 Minutes
- Combine over heat in a large pot the water, OJ, lemon juice, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir in the orange zest, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, green onion, and sesame oil. Stir until well combined. Take off heat.
- Prepare your chicken, it takes a while. Try to get uniform cubes. Get a mixing bowl, and pour in the flour, salt and pepper. With your hands place in all the cubes and mix around until all are coated thoroughly. There should be some flour left at the bottom.
- Place enough peanut oil in a large skillet to cover the bottom. On high, heat up the water until a VERY SMALL drop of water splatters (notice the VERY SMALL). Place about a third of the cube in the pan.
- Your aiming to sear the meat here to trap in the juices. Turn the cubes over until all sides are slightly brown. Set aside, leaving the excess flour in the skillet. Do this until are cubes are browned. You may need to add more oil.
- Add the sauce and chicken cubes into the skillet. Scrape the excess chicken and flour off the bottom - it gives the dish some flavor. Stir around for about 5-10 minutes until the chicken in cooked. The flour should've thickened the sauce a little by now, but if it doesn't add a little corn starch.
- Add the bean sprouts as a garnish, and enjoy your fantastic creation!
