Recipe: Orange Chicken

So the other day we wanted to cook one of our favorite recipes: General Tso's Chicken.

We came back from food shopping and realised we forgot the ginger. Since we were definitely too lazy to go back we decided we had to cook something else.

So onto Pinterest I went. I found this amazing recipe on my Snacks & Main Dishes board.

It looked interesting and I had pinned it ages ago so I thought we could give it a shot since we had already cut the chicken.
We tweaked it a bit since 1) we don't have a slow cooker and 2) I can't follow recipes.


500g chicken breast (cut into bite-size pieces)
sunflower oil
juice from 3 oranges
3 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp salt
4 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 egg
3 tbsp cornstarch
750 ml water
+ rice

Heat up a pan with sunflower oil (better for frying than olive oil). Meanwhile mix the orange juice, ketchup, 1/2 tbsp salt, brown sugar, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Mix the egg with the cornstarch in a larger bowl and add some salt and pepper. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture and start frying it in the pan. When the chicken is lightly golden brown, add the ketchup-orange sauce to the pan. As soon as it starts a-cracklin', pour in some water. Repeat this process until the chicken is completely cooked and serve with rice.

Done ! And it tastes reeeeeally good!

Have fun and tweak the recipe if you can't follow them like me ;)
