    This has to be my favorite recipe! Love everything about it!

    Tastes exactly like takeout! I’ve made this a second time and discovered that an egg isn’t necessary if you’re chicken already has some moisture on it. (P.S. One tweak I made was making a half-batch of extra sauce to go with the chicken, but that’s just my preference)

    The chicken didn’t come out crunchy enough. Also the orange sauce was far to tart and missing the fat element. I too added sesame oil but still a no from us

    Served this for my husband’s birthday; this is what I heard: “Wow! This is awesome!; You made this?! OMG, taste like our favorite place in Missouri!; This is so good “ So yeah, it’s really good:) I did add a little garlic powder and paprika to the flour mixture.

    Awesome recipe, but I seasoned the chicken before I fried it!!!

    It was outstanding! It was really good and seems as if the taste will improve with each time it is made.

    It was pretty good, altough i would recommend seasoning the chicken before cooking it, and the instructions lack cooking times. Otherwise, a very good and simple way to cook aome delicious orange chicken.

    Great tasting, next time I would reduce the amount of vinegar. I like my orange chicken to lean towards the sweeter rather than sour side.

    Yum! Skipped the green onions and zest because I didn’t have these in my cupboard and still turned out great :) used cauliflower rice and the sauce was amazing with it. Will make again!
