Easy Orange Chicken
EASY ORANGE CHICKEN
Sometimes I am busy, so to make orange chicken from scratch takes a lot of time. I bought the panda orange sauce from Costco or Safeway. This orange sauce works great for my orange chicken.
Here’s what you need,
1 cup of orange sauce from Costco or Safeway
1 lb of chicken cut to bite size
Tempura mix for batter
Green onion for garnish
1 T of thinly sliced ginger
Oil for deep fry
Mix tempura batter in a bowl according to package.
Heat oil on medium heat in a wok
Deep one piece of chicken to batter and drop it in hot oil, drop 5 or 6 pieces at one time
Deep fry till golden brown, take it out and drain on paper towel set aside
Repeat the rest of the chicken
In a non-stick stir fry pan, add 1 T of oil heat till hot, then add ginger, fry till it smells good! (about a minute)
Now add chicken and stir fry with the ginger for few seconds
Then add the sauce, mix it well till the chicken heated thoroughly
Add green onion and turn the heat off.
