Ingredients You'll Need

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts cut into bite-size pieces
3 Eggs whisked

1 cup Orange Juice
½ cup Sugar

In a medium pot, add orange juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and red chili flakes. Heat for 3 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 Tablespoons of water to form a paste. Add to orange sauce and whisk together. Continue to cook for 5 minutes, until the mixture begins to thicken. Once the sauce is thickened, remove from heat and add orange zest.
