Orange Chicken

Orange Chicken

Orange Chicken is one of my favorites! For me, orange zest is the key to the flavor of this dish. My kids love this one! I find that if you have everything chopped up and ready to go, it’s easier and will be done in a few minutes!

Here is what you will need.


Chicken Marinade:

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless bite size chicken thights

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp Shaoxing wine

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Homemade Orange Sauce:

3/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup chicken broth

Zest of 1 large orange

1/4 cup honey (warmed up)

1 tsp white vinegar

1 Tbsp soy sauce

1/2 tsp sesame oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

1/4 tsp chili flakes

Additional Ingredients:

2 Tbsp Grapeseed oil

1/2 an onion, chopped

2 green onions, thinly sliced for garnish


1. Mix Chicken ingredients together. Set aside.

2. Make the orange sauce by combining the sauce ingredients together, whisking until well mixed.

3. In a pan, heat oil on high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, without stirring, until well browned.

4. Stir chicken well, cook for another 2 minutes.

5. Add onion and chili flakes. Cook about 3 minutes.

6. Add the orange sauce, and cook a few more minutes, until thickened and nicely glazes the chicken, and until chicken is cooked through.

7. Serve over white rice, garnish with sliced green onions.
