To please my four year old’s orange chicken obsession (from Panda Express nonetheless), I came up with a easy spinoff recipe. It is pre preschooler approved!


Chicken thighs
Panko bread crumbs
Oil to fry

For the sauce:
1 tablespoon of orange zest
2 table spoons orange juice
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice cooking wine
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon oil
2-3 cloves of garlic chopped

Cut the chicken into 2-3 inch pieces. Coat with Panko and fry in oil till golden brown. Drain on a paper towel and keep aside.

Orange sauce: heat oil and sauté the garlic lightly. Add the chicken. Mix the rest of the sauce ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cook for a few minutes till the sauce coats the chicken.

Almost guilt free!
