Orange Chicken with Orange Bell pepper Fried Rice!
Every time I walk past a Chinese Fast Food Joint in a mall, the vendors would usually call out and offer free tasting bites of Orange Chicken. I had never tasted a version of Orange Chicken in India or Malaysia so i assumed its a local favorite in North America. Finally i discovered this food craze was created by Panda Express and Orange Chicken is one of their signature meals. I love the fruity flavors orange imparts to chicken. The closest resemblance we enjoy in India is sweet and sour chicken made with pineapple juice and tomato ketchup. I decided to try this orange chicken at home and found plenty of resources online. Its a very simple recipe which i have adapted to make egg free, corn free and gluten free. Serves : 3-4 people Ingredients: Marination 1 1/2 lb small boneless of chicken 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1 tablespoon yogurt salt and pepper Orange Sauce: 1 1/2 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange
