Orange Chicken

If you have read my posts in the past you probably have noticed that I do not do many Asian style dishes. The reason is I tried following a recipe once for beef and broccoli and completely failed, thus asserting my understanding of my inability to follow recipes. This time I decided to follow my gut and work with what I had on hand. Lucky for me that included dried orange peel. This orange chicken recipe is healthier than the battered chicken you would get from many other recipes, and the flavor is much better.

Ingredients: Serves 2

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes

 1 dried red chili pepper, seeded and soaked in warm water

 1 ½  Tbsp dried orange peel

 1 Tbsp minced garlic

2 slices of ginger, minced

 2 teaspoons canola oil

 

Orange Sauce:

1/2 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice

¼ cup chicken broth

2 Tbsp Low Sodium soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp white vinegar

2 Tbsp granulated sugar

1 dash ground white pepper

1 tsp corn starch

1 dash iodized salt

 

In a skillet heat the canola oil over medium heat. Once pan is nice and hot, add the chicken and season with dried orange peel. Keep pan at a medium to medium low heat continuously tossing the chicken to slowly cook all edges. 

In a medium pot place all of the orange sauce ingredients except he cornstarch over medium heat, using a rubber spatula to mix thoroughly. Once the sauce begins to have a consistency like heated honey, add the corn starch slowly mixing with a whisk.

Back to the chicken pan! When the chicken has cooked about half way, mince the red chili after soaking in warm water for about 10 minutes and add to the chicken pan. If you want it less spicy, only add ¼ of the pepper. Mince the slices of ginger and add to the skillet. Stir the mixture well.

Once the chicken is fully cooked, pour the orange sauce over top and raise the skillet heat to high for 10 seconds. Remove from heat and pour over white rice.

    Mat deprivation leder till undernäring och slutligen svält. Detta är ofta förbunden med svält, vilket innebär brist på mat i hela samhällen.
