How to Make Orange Chicken in a Wok

In my How to Stir Fry post, I also had a Youtube video about Orange Chicken and that my granddaughters Caitlyn and Cristen liked the dish (preferably at Panda Express).  So this past weekend Caitlyn and I made Orange Chicken.  I do want to tell you if you do not have a lot of the ingredients it can be a bit pricey. The Ingredients are:

3 chicken breasts (this was enough for 3 servings)
1 T salt
1 t pepper
1 egg
1/2 cup corn flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 t corn starch
1/2 t minced garlic
1/2 t minced ginger (I couldn't find fresh minced ginger so I bought a ginger root and minced it)
1 cup olive oil (enough to submerge chicken in wok)
1/2 t soy sause
1 cup of orange juice
1/2 t of rice vinegar
3 t of brown sugar
1/2 t sesame oil
1/2 t crushed red pepper
1/2 t orange zest
salt to taste
sesame seeds and
green onions to garnish


Cube the chicken breasts place in a bowl add the salt, pepper and egg white. Stir and set aside for 10 minutes.  During this time I minced the garlic and ginger. Also I grated to orange peal to make the orange zest. Mix 1/2 cup of corn flour with the 1/2 cup all purpose flour.  Dip the chicken in the flour mixture then add it to a hot wok filled with enough oil to submerge the chicken. Once all the chicken is cooked place on a paper towel and set aside.

Clean out the wok and add 1/2 t of sesame oil then add the minced garlic and ginger.  Stir in the soy sauce, orange juice, rice vinegar, brown sugar, crushed red pepper, orange zest and salt (optional).
Bring to boil then add the chicken. Mix 1 t of cornstarch to 3 t of water and add to wok.  Stir until thickens.  Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.  Serve with rice of your choosing and enjoy! Yum Yum!
