"The Best Chinese Orange Chicken"

smilingal | Jul 30, 2014 07:24 AM

I take so much from here - I want to be sure to share and give back...and it is not my recipe. Last night I made the dish that is the subject title. It was posted by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt in Serious Eats. It was FANTASTIC! A bit of a "patchka" with all the ingredients - but definitely well worth it. The only alteration is adding a bit of water one or two times to the sauce to thin it out a little...and...I left the sauce in the pan it cooked in, didn't drain the chicken on paper towels as called for, and placed it directly into the pan with the sauce...and added the steamed broccoli into the chicken and sauce in the pan to coat a little before serving. You need to try this - and if you feel you have a better recipe (after trying this one!) - please share! TY J. Kenji Lopez-Alt.
