Homemade Orange Chicken
A healthier take on homemade orange chicken. We're skipping the deep-frying part, but you'll still enjoy tender juicy chicken with sticky sweet orange sauce! Though you can make this with chicken breast, I highly recommend dark meat here.
In a large bowl, mix chicken, egg white and cornstarch until well combined.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the prepared chicken and cook for about 4 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown, stirring occasionally.
Add ginger and garlic and cook for a minute.
In a medium bowl, whisk together chicken stock, orange juice, zest, brown sugar, soy sauce and rice vinegar.
Stir in the sauce into the chicken and bring it to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes. The sauce should be thickened and reduced by almost half.
In a little bowl, mix cornstarch with water and add it to the simmering chicken. This will thicken the sauce.
Stir in the scallions and cook for another minute or two.
Serve over steamed white rice and enjoy!
