Super delicious! My husband was very happy with the meal. Thank you Yummly
Amazing! So delicious I added chili paste instead of the siracha so it’s spicier and I love it

this was amazing! new house hold favorite!
I read the reviews and added a little extra orange juice. Kids complained but it was good
Muffy H. 18 Aug
complicated to cook and so so taste
Good recipe! I like my orange chicken pretty orange-y so I’ll add more orange juice to the sauce and marinate longer. 30mins made the chicken tender but most of the seasoning fries out.. This is a perfect addition to my Asian-inspired nights!

very flavorful!! i used half the amount of sriracha and it was perfect; not too spicy, but it added a great little tang to it.

loved it!!!look out chinese restaurant! !!
David 10 Nov 2017
Turned out really well. A little patience is required but the results are worth. The only change was dark brown sugar instead of white sugar - personal preference
Ingrid A. 15 Oct 2017
Entire family loved it! Too much sauce though, next time I'll cut sauce in half. Definitely making again!
Brandi Murray 8 Oct 2017
delicious. it's worth the effort for sure
Jaime Hazard 21 Sep 2017
Great! Worth the effort!
McCall L. 24 Aug 2017
Delicious, my favorite orange chicken recipe. A little time consuming but very worth it!
Connie M. 25 Jul 2017
I really didn't care too much for this recipe, basically way too much work for minimal results
Anish Pimpley 27 Jun 2017
Dish tasted great, but took a lot of time and a lot of effort. Stir frying the chicken might be an easier and less pain staking alternative to deep frying. Would recommend for taste, not for effort/reward ratio.
Hello, Jonye! 14 Mar 2017
I've been searching for a recipe that tastes this good for such a long time! First of all, I have tried so many recipes in hopes of perfecting the right type of breading to use when making oriental chicken and this is the one!! Must try!
Allyscia Stein S. 11 Mar 2017
Excellent recipe. I think next time I'd use more orange juice and less soya sauce. Delicious!!! The whole family loved it!
Sonja N. 5 Mar 2017
This one's a keeper! So good! Not hard at all. I was intimidated by the frying at first, but it was no problem. Used chili garlic sauce bc I was out of siracha.
