Homemade Orange Chicken

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Basic Ingredients

1/2 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 cloves garlic, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tsp grated orange zest

 Ingredients For Sauce

In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.

Step 1

Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.

Step 2

Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside on a plate.

Step 3

In a saucepan, combine the orange juice, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, cornstarch, red pepper flakes, and orange zest. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.

Step 4

Add the cooked chicken to the sauce and toss to coat. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the chicken is heated through and coated in the sauce.

Step 5

Serve the orange chicken over rice, garnished with green onions or sesame seeds, if desired.
