Question by catzmeow246: Mall “orange chicken”?
Does anyone know how to make the orange chicken that they sell at the Chinese food places in the mall? They are always passing it out on toothpicks. It doesn’t taste orange, but it has an orange colored glaze. I’d really appreciate it if anyone has the recipe.

  3. Easy Orange Chicken Stir-fry
    You can use a skillet if you don’t have a Wok

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
    2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1/3 cup orange juice*<<< the sub is better 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon chile paste 1 clove garlic, minced 1 slice ginger, minced Oil for stir-frying, as needed PREPARATION: Place the cubed chicken in a bowl, and add the marinade ingredients. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the sauce ingredients and the garlic and ginger. Heat the wok and add oil. When oil is ready, add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry until aromatic. Add the chicken and stir-fry until it changes color. Push up to the sides of the wok, making a well in the middle. Add the sauce. Combine the sauce and the chicken. Stir-fry for another minute and serve hot. *If you find the orange flavor too overpowering, try substituting a combination of orange juice and water to make 1/3 cup.

  5. Orange Chicken


    (2 servings)

    1 ea Whole Large Chicken Breast *
    1/2 c Cooked Rice
    1/4 ts Finely Shredded Orange Peel
    1 x Dash Ground Cinnamon
    1/2 c Orange Juice
    1 1/2 ts Cornstarch
    2 tb Broken Walnut Meats
    2 x Cucumber Roses (Opt.)


    * Chicken Breast should be skinned and boned. ——————- Halve chicken breast lengthwise. Place one portion, boned side up, between two pieces of clear plastic wrap. Working from the center to the edges, pound lightly with a meat mallet, forming a rectangle about 1/8-inch thick. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle chicken with salt to taste. Repeat with the remaining portion of chicken. In a small bowl stir together cooked rice, shredded orang peel, and ground cinnamon. Spoon half of the rice orange peel mixture atop one chicken breast portion, spreading it to within 1/4-inch of the edges. Fold in sides, roll up jelly-roll style, starting with one end. Repeat with the remaining rice-orange peel mixture and chicken portion. Place chicken rolls, seam side down, in a shallow baking dish. Cover with vented clear plastic wrap. Micro-cook the chicken rolls, covered, on 50% power for 7 to 8 minutes or till chicken is tender, rotating dish a half-turn after 4 minutes. Transfer chicken rolls to a serving platter. For orange sauce, in a 1-cup measure stir together orange juice and cornstarch. Micro-cook, uncovered, on 100% power for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or till mixture is thickened and bubbly, stirring every 20 seconds. Stir in broken walnut meats. Spoon the orange sauce atop the chicken rolls on the serving platter. Garnish with cucumber roses, if desired.
