Orange Chicken

This sweet and sticky Orange Chicken recipe is one of my kid’s favorite dish. This dish is usually popular and known at Chinese Restaurants. I personally love sweet dishes so I just had to try this recipe at home.

Here’s my version of the Orange Chicken.



  • 1 large boneless chicken breast (cut into cubes)
  • 2 tbsp green onions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 cups of oil (for cooking)

For the Sauce:

  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 chili pepper (chopped) or you can also use pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp ginger (minced)
  • half of bell pepper (minced)
  • 3 pcs oranges or ponkan (juice extracted and keep a part of the zest )
