HOW DO YOU MAKE BAKED ORANGE CHICKEN?

  • Cut up 4 chicken breasts into small, bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the chicken and mix it together to make sure that the pieces get coated. 
  • Place them into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and add the cornstarch. Close the bag and shake to coat the chicken in the cornstarch.
  • Crack 4 eggs into a bowl and in several batches coat the chicken pieces in the egg and then place in the pan of hot oil and let it cook. 
  • You do not need to let it cook all the way through. Only about 2 minutes on each side. You’re looking to get a nice crust on the chicken not to have it cook through. 
  • Let drain on a plate lined with a paper towel and do another batch. 
  • Place all the crispy chicken pieces into a 9×13 baking dish. Mix up the simple orange sauce and pour over the chicken pieces.
  • Bake for 1 hour, stirring and re-coating the pieces every 15 minutes. 
  • Serve over rice and garnish with green onions and orange slices.
