How to Make Asian Orange Chicken

  1. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces. In a bowl, mix the chicken, soy sauce, and cornstarch. Leave for 10-15 minutes to marinate.
  2. In a large frying pan or wok, heat the oil. Add the chicken and fry until golden. Transfer the chicken to a paper towel to remove excess fat.
  3. In the same pan, prepare the sauce. Mix the orange juice, zest, soy sauce, vinegar, broth, sugar, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens.
  4. Return the chicken to the pan and mix well so that the chicken is covered with the sauce. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Serve hot, sprinkled with herbs and sesame seeds if desired. It pairs well with rice or noodles.

Enjoy your meal!
