    Good and simple recipe. I think a little hotness would help.

    It was nice but not my favorite orange chicken :/ I will give it another try with some tweaks Next time I will sub white sugar for honey, maple or brown sugar It took me a really long time, 3.5 hrs to prepare the whole meal chicken, rice and broccoli I used much less orange zest around 1/6 I substituted arrow root for corn starch

    Delicious with rice, topped with green onion and sesame seeds. Just for kicks, added green & yellow beans, juliene carrots, was great.

    I feel like it's way too much sodium and sugar? But I just added half as much and it was still really good!

    Excellent meal. I would half the red pepper if you aren’t fond of spice.

    Turned out really well! Chicken was so crispy and delicious on its own. Since we love spicy food, made some modifications to the recipe. 1. Added some chilli powder for the chicken. 2. Reduced the amount of sugar. 3. Added more chillies for the sauce as well. IT WAS A DEFINITE HIT! 🥰

    I used a pre-made sauce, but the recipe for the chicken was fabulous. The breading was flawless. My favorite so far of the 3 different orange chicken recipes I’ve tried in the last two months.

    Amazing, and surprisingly easy. Great flavour that wasn't too overpowering.

    Great flavor! Sauce was amazing. Def have to make more next time. also i think this recipe would work well with an air fryer, but i wouldn't know because I don't have one lol but i assume it might cut down cook time. cooking this dish definitely took longer than 35 mins. cooking it the conventional method.

    I doubled the sauce but I don’t think it was necessary. Good stuff

    It was easy to make. I just added a little bit of vegeta in 🍊 sauce because I don't know how to cook without vegeta 😂 I have also put some pieces of orange at the end on top of chicken. My boyfriend and I loved it! Very similar to the one from restaurant or even better!

    Delicious! I didn’t have any corn starch and substituted with flour and it still came out wonderfully!
    Yummly User 3 months ago
    Delicious! Definitely would like to make it again in the future.

    Going into the rotation for sure! Hubby and kiddo loved it! She even said it was better than take out! I would love to find a different way to coat the chicken, almost would rather make a batter to dredge it in to save the hassle and mess of egg/flour step. Suggestions? Will absolutely make again!!
