Ingredients You'll Need
ORANGE CHICKEN SAUCE
1/ 2 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice ( 2 oranges)
Zest from one orange
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
4 tablespoons of honey ( if you like sweeter sauce add 1 more tablespoon)
1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons of minced garlic

1 tablespoon of orange marmalade (Optional)

2 tablespoons of corn starch
2 Pounds of chicken breast cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon of toasted sesame seed oil
1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil
salt and pepper to taste on chicken
In a mixing bowl whisk all your orange sauce ingredients together and set aside. Orange juice, zest, soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger, orange marmalade, sambal, and corn starch.
Add grape seed oil and toasted sesame seed oil to saute pan on medium high heat. Add chicken and brown and cook thoroughly through around 6 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken.
Remove chicken from pan and drain all the leftover oil from the pan. Add the orange sauce and chicken back to the pan on medium heat. The sauce should thicken up in 2 to 3 minutes then remove from heat.
Serve with your favorite rice or just add steamed sugar snaps to the orange chicken for a meal.
