I am a frequent stir fry eater, as I find it both healthy and delicious. It’s also easy and a great way to make a one dish meal. For a while now, I have been looking for some good Orange Chicken recipes with no luck! I tried a few and neither of them turned out well. I think for the most part it was probably just me!
Then, I saw this Orange Chicken recipe on Mommy’s Kitchen. This was exactly what I was looking for! I had every intention of making the sauce myself and creating this exactly as the recipe instructs; however, then I was wandering down the aisles at my local grocery store and found, Panda Express Orange Sauce.
I immediately realized I could possibly save myself even more time and ingredients and use this sauce instead. My husband and I love Panda Express, so I knew without a doubt we would really enjoy this sauce.
I went ahead and made this recipe exactly as she instructs regarding method, the only part I changed was instead of making my own sauce I used 1 Cup of the Panda Express Orange Sauce. I poured this in with the chicken and veggies just as the recipe calls for. I let it cook until it was well saturated into my chicken and veggies.
Another reason why I love dishes like this is that this sauce has no MSG, one of the downsides for me when it comes to Asian food is I try to stay away from MSG but so much of it consists of MSG it is sometimes hard to do that. Making this at home means I can make it as healthy or not healthy as I would like.
I am loving this Orange Chicken and the sauce. I am planning to utilize this same technique to make Kung Pao Chicken. I found a sauce for that as well, I am not into spicy so that one will be all for my husband!
