  • Panda Express Orange Chicken by GOLGal

    I tried this recipe that I found at recipelink last night. It was very good although not quite like Panda Express. I served it over fried rice (I bought that at the Chinese place, had to cut down on time) If you try this, make sure that the chicken gets crispy.

    Panda Express Orange Chicken

    2 lbs boneless chicken pieces, skinned
    1 egg
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    white pepper
    1/2 c plus 1 Tbsp cornstarch
    1/4 c flour
    1 tbsp minced ginger root
    1 tsp minced garlic
    dash crushed hot red chiles
    1/4 c chopped green onions
    1 tbsp rice wine
    Orange Chicken Sauce
    1/4 c water
    1/2 to 1 tsp sesame oil

    Cut chicken pieces into 2-inch squares and place in large bowl. Stir in egg,
    salt, pepper, and 1 tbsp oil and mix well. Stir cornstarch and flour
    together. Add chicken pieces, stirring to coat.
    Heat oil for deep-frying in wok or deep-fryer to 375 degrees. Add chicken
    pieces, small batch at time, and fry 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and crisp.
    (Do not overcook or chicken will be tough.) Remove chicken from oil with
    slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
    Clean wok and heat 15 seconds over high heat. Add 1 tbsp oil. Add ginger
    and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant. Add and stir-fry crushed chiles and
    green onions. Add rice wine and stir 3 seconds. Add Orange Sauce and bring
    to boil. Add cooked chicken, stirring until well mixed. Stir water into
    remaining 1 tbsp cornstarch until smooth.
    Add to chickn and heat until sauce is thickened. Stir in 1 tbsp oil and
    sesame oil. Serve at once. Makes 6 servings.

    Orange Chicken Sauce

    1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
    1 1/2 tbsp water
    5 tbsp sugar
    5 tbsp white vinegar

    Mix soy sauce, water, sugar and vinegar together.
