Chicken & Batter

  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed

  7. Serve & Enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • If you start the chicken as soon as you get the sauce heating, they should be ready at the same time.
  • A meat thermometer is an excellent tool for checking whether the meat is cooked. The middle of the chicken's thickest part should be at least 75°C (165°F).
  • Sliced scallions or sesame seeds are perfect as a garnish for this dish.
  • If you are cooking rice in a rice cooker, you might want to get it cooking before getting started on this recipe.
  • You can also do orange chicken in the slow cooker to get it cooking hours ahead of when you need it. However, you won't need to batter the chicken. Otherwise, it will go soggy and just fall off the chicken.
