How To Make Orange Chicken | Orange Chicken Copycat Recipe #MrMakeItHappen #OrangeChicken

#asmallorange Alex Guz – I wish i had read these reviews before joining ASO. It’s just frustraiting the amount of downtime, and when the website is up then you have tons of problems. I can’t login to my WHM account or Cpanel for any of my pages. Some people in customer support know what their doing, but you have to be a pain in the ass and insist in getting a supervisor in order to get those people on the chat. Forget about getting a phone number to talk to someone. As i’m writing this review i noticed people were complaining about the latest collective downtime on Facebook (i’ve been on chat with them for over a month trying to solve different problems). Good luck trying to find them, they removed all the bad comments. It’s even hard to get away from them. I’m trying to download my latest backup and forget about it. Access to phpMyAdmin, forget it, can’t even display the databases.

I’ll be honest.. I am on record as not being a fan of Panda Express lol. A lot of people love their Orange Chicken and I can see why. Today, I show you how to #MakeItHappen at home!

Shopping List:
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
all-purpose seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder)
1 cup corn starch
1/2 cup flour
1 quart buttermilk
oil for frying
green onion
fresno chili

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
zest and juice of 1 orange
1 tbsp garlic
1 tbsp ginger
2 tbsps honey
Slurry – 1-2 tbsps of water and 1-2 tbsps corn starch

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and season generously. Coat in buttermilk.

Start your sauce by adding sugar, vinegar, water, and soy sauce to a pot and bring to a simmer. Allow this to reduce for 10-12 minutes. Add your orange juice and zest and garlic/ginger. Mix to combine. Add in honey and combine. Mix together your slurry by adding water and corn starch together and then pour into your sauce. (this will help thicken the sauce). Add diced fresno chili

Season corn starch and flour generously and then take the chicken from the buttermilk and place it into the flour, a few at a time, ensuring they are coated evenly. Fry at 350 degrees for 4-7 minutes or until golden brown and 175 degrees internal temp. Coat in your sauce, garnish with green onion and serve.

    I was hoping it was the Orange Chicken at Cheesecake Factory. i think you need to do several recipes from there. However, I would love to see you do a copycat of their Steak Diane, Miso Salmon and the Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp dishes. Thanks Matt!

    It looks deliscious! But honestly, it's a bit hard to take seriously when you yourself don't really care for the dish.😞😞
