Orange Chicken Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

Juicy tangy morsels of deep fried chicken, tossed in an orange sauce, that are crunchy on the outside and moist and soft on the inside.This recipe is different than the orange chicken recipe with orange marmalade that is SUPER popular online because the sauce in that recipe is based on a mixture of barbecue sauce and orange marmalade. While some of the pictures may look slightly similar, this Panda Express Orange Chicken is going to taste a lot different.
