Easy Orange Chicken Recipe (Better Than Panda Express!)



I admit it. I’m addicted to the Orange Chicken from Panda Express and it’s literally the first place I visit when I visit America. Since I can’t visit on a regular basis, I decided to try and replicate it at home. Subscribe for more videos! http://goo.gl/18SB8p

INGREDIENTS:
1 lb/400 g chicken thigh or breast
1 orange
2 cloves garlic
1 stub ginger
chili pepper
1 egg white
2/3 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1/2(50g) cup cornstarch
1/2(55g) cup flour
1/2(100ml) cup shaoying rice wine (you can use white wine or omit this ingredient completely if you want)
1/2(100ml) cup soy sauce
1/2(100ml) cup vinegar
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp honey

DIRECTIONS:
Wash and dry orange. Zest your orange and save the zest for later. Juice the orange and set aside. Grate garlic and ginger. Chop the chilis. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and place into a bowl. Put one egg white into the bowl along with the salt and pepper and give it a quick massage. Add cornstarch and flour and once again, mix it with your hands until chicken is evenly coated. Deep fry in hot oil (350 F/175C) for 4-5 minutes until crispy and golden brown. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

For the sauce, combine shaoxing wine, soy sauce, orange, ginger, garlic, chili and vinegar. Heat until boiling then turn to low. Add cornstarch slurry (cornstarch & water) and cook on medium heat until sauce thickens. Add honey and mix well. Add the chicken and a drizzle of sesame oil and mix to coat the chicken. Serve with hot rice.

    Can I use Aji-mirin instead of the wine? Rice vinegar?

  13. In the video you state 1/4 cup soy sauce & 1/4 cup white wine but in the written directions above you state 1/2 cup soy sauce & 1/2 cup white wine. I made it according to the directions in the video and it turned out really good! However, when I went to write down the ingredients to make I noticed the discrepancy. Which set of directions are the intended, correct directions??? Thanks!!

  16. There is a differnce between the printed recipe and the video, in the video only the half of soy sauce and rice wine is used!? Which one is the right choice?

    If you add 2 tsp orange marmalade, it'll be thicker and not so runny
