orange chicken

Orange chicken

Orange chicken is an American-Chinese dish that was invented as a variation on General Tso's chicken. The dish consists of battered chicken that is fried with sweet and sour orange and chili sauce. In the United States, a chain restaurant called Panda Express credits itself with the invention of the dish, evolving it into a meal that is much sweeter than the dish it was modeled after - the original tangy and spicy version from Hunan, where the subtropical climate with mild winters makes it ideal for growing oranges, tangerines, and lemons that are native to Asia.

Ingredients:

- Chicken breast

- Orange

- Olive oil

- Salt

- Pepper

- Garlic powder

- Onion powder

- Paprika

Direction:

1. Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Take 2 chicken breasts and season them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Rub the seasoning onto both sides of the chicken breasts.

3. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

4. Once the oil is heated, add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until they are golden brown.

5. While the chicken is cooking, prep your orange by zesting it and then juicing it. Set aside the zest and juice for later use.

6. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a baking dish and pour the orange juice over the chicken.

7. Sprinkle the orange zest on top of the chicken.

8. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked and the sauce has thickened.

9. Serve the orange chicken hot with your choice of side dishes, such as rice, vegetables, or salad.

10. Optional: For an extra burst of citrus flavor, you can also squeeze some fresh orange juice on top of the chicken before serving. Enjoy your delicious and easy orange chicken!
