Course: Dinner, Lunch
Cuisine: Chinese
Keyword: Chinese Orange Chicken, Orange Chicken, Orange Chicken Recipe, Orange Teriyaki Chicken


For The Chicken

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Slap Ya Mama® seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil

For The Sauce

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Zest from one large orange
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Teriyaki sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 4 Tbsp water


For The Chicken

  • Start out by cutting chicken into 1 inch chunks and place in a large resealable baggie.
  • Once the sauce has been mixed together, add 1/2 cup of cold sauce mixture into the baggie with the chicken. Seal and gently shake to coat the chicken. Place chicken in the fridge for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, drain the liquid (before adding to eggs).
  • Next, using an electric skillet or large frying pan, heat oil and sesame oil to 375°. 
  • Scoop flour into another large resealable baggie and add pepper and Slap Ya Mama® seasoning. Seal, shake to mix.
  • Whisk eggs together in a shallow bowl and add half the chicken chunks to the bowl with the egg mixture. Stir to coat, then place chicken pieces into baggie with flour mixture. Shake to coat.
  • Remove chicken pieces from flour and carefully place 8-10 pieces at a time into the skillet or frying pan. (Do not put too many pieces at a time into the oil because that will change the temperature of the oil and chicken will not be crispy.)
  • Deep fry chicken until golden brown then flip over and brown other side until internal temperature reaches 165°, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Remove cooked chicken and place on a plate lined with paper towels.

For The Sauce

  • In a medium saucepan, add chicken broth, orange juice, orange zest, rice vinegar, sugar, Teriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes and pepper. Stir, (1/2 cup has already been removed and had been added to baggie with chicken.)
  • Bring sauce to a boil over medium heat stirring occasionally.
  • In a small bowl, mix corn starch and water together. Add mixture to sauce and heat over low/medium heat until sauce thickens up.
  • Pour sauce over chicken, stir to coat and serve over rice.
