Back to Orange chicken recipe


Great recipe! This is the second orange chicken recipe I have tried. The first one did not include any orange zest in the sauce. I like the citrus favor in this one.

I have tried this recipe with a few modifications and the result was delicious. What I did was use two egg whites instead of a whole egg, use less ginger (1/2 teaspoon), use 2 tablespoons of orange juice (instead of half an orange) for the orange sauce and add a chopped green bell pepper together with the onion when cooking the chicken.

The orange zest is very important in this recipe. I have tried this recipe without it and the result was not good.

Best orange chicken recipe so far. I added 2 chopped bell peppers while cooking the chicken and served the dish over fried rice. Definitely recommended!

I tried the recipe but the chicken was not crispy. Quite a good taste though.

One of my favorite chicken recipes. What I do is prepare the orange sauce a few hours ahead - I use both the zest and juice of an orange. The extra time allows the flavors in the sauce to develop and therefore results in a much tastier dish. I have my orange chicken with fried or steamed rice.

I have been making orange chicken for some time now. This recipe is one of the best, with a few minor changes. Use the zest of 1/2 an orange, 2 tablespoons of fresh orange juice, cut the chicken pieces smaller (about 1 inch cubes) and make double the orange sauce. To double the sauce, use the following quantities:

8 Tbsp brown sugar
Zest from 1 orange
4 tablespoons of fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
3 tablespoons water
10 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Great recipe!!! Orange chicken is one of my favorite chicken dishes.

Not as good as the original Panda Express orange chicken recipe, but as close as it can get.

I have used 2 tablespoons of orange liqueur of the orange sauce (instead of fresh orange juice and zest) and the result was quite good! I have also substituted the white onion with spring onion - it adds some extra color to the dish.

Awesome chicken recipe!!! Here is a good tip: To get crunchier chicken, add the orange sauce into the pan before you add the chicken, cook it until you get the desired consistency, then add the chicken and toss for about a minute, until it is covered in the sauce. Add the vegetable and sesame oil and serve immediately.

Another chicken favorite! I use less ginger and 1 teaspoon of orange flavoring instead of the orange zest for the sauce. Omitting the orange zest takes out a bit of the bitterness from the sauce. Next time I will try orange extract instead of flavoring.

I made this recipe yesterday and I liked it more than Panda Express orange chicken. And it's cheaper too!

Great chicken dish! Brown sugar and orange zest really makes a difference - I tried it with white sugar and the result was not as good. I also changed the amount of ginger and chili used (I like it hotter). This orange chicken recipe is definitely my favorite.

Great! I used the tips about cooking the sauce before adding the chicken and the result was even better. Thanks...

Very close to the Panda Express orange chicken! We use less ginger, a bit more chili, definitely orange zest and we thicken the orange sauce before we add the chicken. The result is delicious

Excellent recipe! We like it more than the authentic Panda Express recipe. The tips were very helpful, especially the one about cooking / thickening the sauce before adding the chicken. We like the taste of orange in the sauce so I use the zest and fresh orange juice. My next attempt will be to use orange extract instead of the zest and juice. Thanks!

Thanks for a great recipe! We made it a while ago and it was fantastic!

I tried this recipe for the first time and I did not like it at all. The chicken came out soggy and the orange sauce was not as good as the one at Panda Express.

Not as good as Panda's but quite close.

I am using a wok and fry the chicken in peanut oil. I also leave the ginger out - I don't like it. I do use the orange zest and juice though, as mentioned in the recipe above.

Great recipe. I tried it today and the result was quite good. I will definitely try it again. Can anyone suggest recipes similar to orange chicken? Thanks

If you like orange chicken, try the Chinese sweet and sour chicken. The cooking method is very similar, the main difference is in the sauce.

This was delicious!!! Probably one of the best chicken recipes I ever made. Here is a good tip. To make the chicken crunchier, repeat the coating process before deep frying it, ie, dip it in the egg mixture, coat it with the flour mixture and repeat, first with the egg and then with the flour. This dish is supposed to be made in a wok, from start to finish, but I using a deep fryer for frying the chicken, then I use the wok to finish the recipe.

My family loves orange chicken. It is one of our favorite dishes and we must have it at least twice a month. I make extra orange sauce (double the quantity) and serve the dish with fried rice. If there are leftovers, I put them in the refrigerator and reheat them the day after. The chicken gets soggy the next day but the flavor is even better!
