Orange Chicken Recipe

I love this Orange Chicken Recipe; it is absolutely delicious! Before we start cooking, did you know that Orange Chicken is a dish of American-Chinese origin? There are claims that this recipe originally came from Hunan (a province in china) and was modified when brought here in North America for the purpose of adapting to the American palate.In my opinion, Panda Express makes the best Orange Chicken. Though it is a fast food chain, most of their dishes are far better than the one’s served in restaurants.

Orange Chicken

This is not the original Orange Chicken Recipe of Panda Express but rather a regular variation similar to the one’s served in Chinese buffets ( just added green onions to make it more appealing). I also minimized the ingredients to make this a budget friendly Orange Chicken Recipe fit for those who want to practice a frugal way of living. I will try to make our future recipes as budget friendly as possible so please stay tuned.

      Good am. We prepared this recipe for our cooking festival. Tapao before po ng competition, actually the day before na po ‘yun, eto po nakita naming lutuin nalang. Then pagkatapos nung competition, saka lang po namin natikman etong Orange Chicken. Parang ‘yung niluto po namin na pinagcompete namin, parang trial lang po ‘yun. Then, nung lumabas na po ‘yung result, kami pa po pala nanalo. Maraming salamat po dito. :)
