The first time I had orange chicken was on a trip to California. My brother picked me up at the airport and took me directly to Panda Express. I had never been there and therefore never had the privilege of tasting this crispy orange delight. Since that day, I often crave this entree.
I had a hankering for orange chicken a few nights ago. Could I make this on my own? Why yes, yes, I can! Thanks to Kaela at Local Kitchen. It was an easy recipe, in fact my 9 year old helped me whip it up. The recipe was a bit time consuming only because you have to fry the chicken. Here's a cooking tip from the Food network. After you coat your chicken with the flour and spices, place it in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes. It will keep that flour on the chicken and make it delightfully crusty!
Everyone in my family liked it, which is a major accomplishment. Madison also had a friend over who had 3 helpings. Bonus! I will definitely make this again.
