Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of orange chicken. I don’t understand the concept of breaded chicken, deep fried, tossed in sauce, then fried and served over rice… I’m no health coach but I’ll take my carbs into consideration when thinking of this meal but what I will say is the flavor is like no other and when you add this secret ingredient it make just the magic touch.
First I had to think of a way to craft orange chicken without breading the chicken breast chunks but rather yet letting them marinate in all this asian, orange, goodness!
First things first here is what you will need..
- two boneless chicken breasts
- two oranges
- fresh ginger
- pure vegetable oil
- soy sauce
- 40oz Sapporo
- scallions (green onions)
- green beans and broccoli
- Spices: garlic powder, red chili flakes, pepper, garlic salt
- First, you will need to dice up your chicken into small chunks while raw. Add them into a large mixing bowl and squeeze one entire orange into it with the ginger and red chili flakes and any other seasonings that will bring the best out of you. At this time also empty out half of your Sapporo bottle into your mixing bowl.
- In a wok pan, grill your chicken slowly pouring in more beer as it cooks thoroughly. Adding fresh orange zest, ginger, and more soy sauce.
- Now its time to steam the green beans and broccoli in garlic and pepper. It makes for great flavor. Keep an eye on your veggies to steam them while they’re bright green, thats steamed perfection!
- Garnish your chicken with sesame seeds and green onions and serve over white/ brown rice.
