Crunchy Orange Chicken Recipe

If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been on a bit of an “orange” kick lately! It started with our Baked Coconut Shrimp with Orange Marmalade Dipping Sauce. Then we used some more orange marmalade to make the Orange Marmalade Cookies.

 

For this crunchy orange chicken, we used a little bit of orange marmalade as well as orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, and some herbs and spices to make the delicious sauce. The sauce was not only good on the chicken, it was also great with the rice and mixed veggies. I wish we had made more of the orange sauce! We will probably try that next time.
