Panda Express Orange Chicken



This is one of my favorite from Panda Express. I got this recipe long ago and now I want to share it with you all.

2 lbs. boneless chicken pieces, skinned

1 egg

1 1/2 teas. salt

white pepper

oil (for frying)

1/2 cup plus 1 Tbl. cornstarch

1/4 cup flour

1 Tbl. minced ginger root

1 teas. minced garlic

dash crushed hot red chiles

1/4 cup chopped green onions

1 Tbl. rice wine

1/4 cup water

1/2 to 1 teas. sesame oil


ORANGE SAUCE FOR STIR FRY:

2 teas. Minced zest and

1 lg Orange

salt, pepper, and 1 T 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. Add chicken pieces,

a small batch at time, and fry 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and crisp.

slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
