Spicy Orange Chicken
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min.
I was excited to try this. I loved the fresh oranges idea but the sauce came out too vinegary for my taste. I may try making it again with about half the rice vinegar.
I've been craving Chinese take-out, but one of my resolutions is to eat at home and avoid going out to eat or getting take out. Of course, I turned to TOH Take Out Fake Out for a make at home version. I was really thinking of making General Tso's Chicken, and this was as close as I could find, so I decided to give this a try. I am soooo glad that I did! I had chicken thighs on hand, so I used them in place of the chicken breasts - worked great! I also had a 5 lb bag of Cuties (tangelos), so I used some of them for the sectioned oranges. I followed the recipe exactly from there. I will definitely be making this again. The only thing I might do differently is to up the amount of chicken broth to a cup and probably 3 T of cornstarch so that there is more of the yummy sauce. My husband had this over rice, and while I would have loved it that way, I had mine over steamed broccoli to keep down the carbs. Delicious!
