Better than take-out Orange Peel Chicken recipe that couldn’t be easier to make from scratch!
I’m all about take-out style recipes you can make from home. Orange chicken is one of my all-time favorites, but I also love:
The flavors in this recipe are perfect–sweet and tangy, with a little bit of spice. And you honestly can’t beat how EASY this dish is.
Made in one pan, no deep-frying or special methods. It’s way healthier than take-out too. I serve it with my favorite Fried Rice, (I leave out the ham and substitute brown rice.)
