Orange Chicken

Orange chicken is yummy.  You can do this with beef too, but I think chicken is best.  Never tried it with pork or seafood but who knows, might be good too.  Anyway, here's how I make it.

Here are the ingredients.  That's pepper hiding behind the ginger.  And yes, I forgot the brown sugar... >.<
1 to 1 1/2lb chicken cut into bite size pieces
About a cup and a half of your choice of veggies
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 ts orange zest
1/4 cup soy sauce
1tb sesame oil
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 ts pepper
1/4 ts ground ginger
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 cloves pressed or finely minced garlic
Siracha to taste
Few tb of your choice of oil. I used canola.
corn starch for coating

 Put chicken, 1/4 cup OJ, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tb sesame oil and zest in zip lock bag and
let sit for an hour or so in the fridge.
Once time is up, coat marinated chicken in corn starch.  It doesn't need to be coated like you're making fried chicken, just enough to make some crispy bits.  Drain on paper towel.

Once chicken is done, sautee veggies in a little more oil.  Not a whole lot, you still want them crispy.

Once chicken and veggies are cooked, throw the rest tof the ingredients in the pan and cook until reduced by half.

 Then, throw everybody back in the pool and cook for another few minutes until
all is coated and sticky.  Serve with rice if desired.
