#SundaySupper Orange Chicken #Dinner

This is soooo good!! I have always loved orange chicken, back from the panda express days. But sorry PE, my husband got Kung Pao Chicken there once, and happened to get food poisoning. So…we no longer go to Panda Express. But I still want an orange chicken from time to time. This is such a tasty recipe! I had to get a little help from the Hubster on the frying because I haven’t done it before. We also used a large pot instead of a pan, just keeps the grease in better I think from spraying. We have kiddos that never stay out of the kitchen plus I am totally inexperienced and tend to hurt myself easily too. I found this recipe on No Recipes. I am still a little confused about the title but whatever.

Orange Chicken

serves 3-4

for chicken
1 pound chicken thighs, cut into strips
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sake
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1/2 cup potato starch
oil for frying

for orange sauce
2/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup marmalade
2 teaspoons potato starch (halve if using cornstarch)
1/2 teaspoon salt

Put the chicken in a bowl with the soy sauce, sake and ginger and marinate for at least 15 minutes. When the chicken is done marinating, lightly dust each piece with potato starch.

Heat a pot with at least 1/2″ of oil in it over medium heat until hot. In a separate pan, add the orange juice, marmalade, 2 teaspoons of potato starch and the salt and whisk to combine.

Fry the chicken until golden brown and transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain. When the chicken is done frying, heat the orange sauce over medium high heat, stirring constantly to prevent clumping until the sauce is thick and bubbly. Add the fried chicken into the orange sauce and toss to coat.

I love that this recipe calls for Sake, it is a perfect excuse to pour a glass for the Hubby who really enjoys it. :)

Our amazing Host this week is The Meltaways. Thanks so much for putting our #SundaySupper List Together :)

Autumn is a magical season.

The nights get cooler and longer, the leaves burst into brilliant colors.

Festivals and fairs, pumpkin patches and trick or treating.

And the food! How can we not talk about the food? Pumpkins, sweet potatoes and yams, butternut squash, not to mention the sweet teases from the upcoming citrus season.

With all of these glorious foods of fall, I am thrilled to be hosting an All Things Orange #SundaySupper on October 7th. It seems so specific, but the possibilities are darn near endless….savory, sweet, baked goods to breakfast dishes, if the main ingredient is that magical fall color, it will fit in perfectly!
