Orange Chicken


I’ve made this twice now.  It is so easy and we all love it.  The taste is similar to sweet and sour chicken, but it has a little bit of kick from red pepper flakes in the sauce.

It’s a complete cheater meal, making use of several convenience items.  That means this meal can be fixed in just about 15 minutes.  Faster than grabbing food at a restaurant.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 bag frozen popcorn chicken
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • vegetable oil
  • 1-1 1/2 cups Orange Sauce – I used Panda Express bought from Walmart
  • cooked rice, not in photo

Put the popcorn chicken in the oven and bake according to the package directions.

Cook the onion and green pepper in a skillet with a little vegetable oil.  Cook until tender-crisp.  Pour in 1 to 1 1/2 cups of orange sauce.  Add the chicken to the skillet and stir to combine.  Serve over rice.

  4. You could make single servings of this, and add more veggies. I think it would be healthier than what you get from a take-out restaurant.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  5. It looks gorgeous!! I’ll have to take a look for that sauce. I’ll use it with grilled chicken, those bagged chickens are way too high in calories! I’d rather eat more! I’ll add a ton of veggies too. Thanks!
