Mmmm Orange chicken.
I made this last week, got the reipe from About.com
Hopefully it tastes somewhat like you remembered.
I haven't been posting on BTS in a while, and although adding my thoughts to ATS threads isn't my forte, I do love to read. Time to get back into
I do love to cook
You're right about the marinade!
Ingredients: 4 Chicken breasts
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon chile paste
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 slice ginger, minced
Oil for stir-frying, as needed
Place the cubed chicken in a bowl, and add the marinade ingredients. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes.
While the chicken is marinating, prepare the sauce ingredients and the garlic and ginger.
Heat the wok and add oil. When oil is ready, add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry until aromatic.
Add the chicken and stir-fry until it changes color. Push up to the sides of the wok, making a well in the middle. Add the sauce.
Combine the sauce and the chicken. Stir-fry for another minute and serve hot.
I dont have an authentic wok, I used a poor mans pot for this, but it tasted alright.
