Crispy Orange Chicken is a popular Chinese dish that features battered and fried chicken pieces that are coated in a tangy, sweet, and slightly spicy orange sauce. The chicken is typically first marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, and other seasonings before being coated in a mixture of cornstarch and flour and deep-fried until crispy.

The orange sauce is made by combining fresh orange juice, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan and bringing the mixture to a boil. Cornstarch is added to thicken the sauce and give it a glossy texture. The crispy chicken is then tossed in the sauce, allowing the flavors to meld together and the chicken to absorb the delicious sauce.

Crispy Orange Chicken is often served with steamed rice and garnished with chopped green onions and sesame seeds. It is a delicious and satisfying dish that is perfect for any occasion, from a quick weeknight dinner to a special occasion meal.
