I love Asian food. This dish is super easy and quick to make if your in a hurry. I also added red chili pepper flakes to mine to add a little spice to it. This also tastes really good if you add some of the orange rind to your rice while your making it. This will give your rice a nice citrus flavour and you will really feel like your eating orange chicken. You could also use beef, pork or shrimp in this dish.
- Package chicken breasts, chopped in bite size pieces
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon orange rind
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Hoisin sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 cup of mixed bell peppers, chopped
- 1/3 cup onion, chopped
- 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
- White rice
In a zip lock bag combine chicken, orange juice, orange rind, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and brown sugar. Shake bag and marinate in fridge for at least 30 minutes. The long the better.
Heat wok or pan and add olive oil. Add onion and garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Add chicken along with the marinade and cook chicken throughly. Add bell peppers and cook until soft.
If you would like the sauce thick then add a little cornstarch and water until desired thickness.
Serve over rice.
