Orange Chicken

After seeing the advertisements of orange chicken everywhere my husband started asking me to make this at home. As I was little hesitant about how it would taste and if it is sweet then nobody will eat it, so I never made it. But my daughter also started insisting me to try making it and at last gave a try and googled a lot and finalized on this one, which was an eye catcher. This dish was not like what I thought. It was really yummm…

The flour covered, lightly fried chicken pieces are well coated in a sweet orange flavored chilli sauce is a very delicious recipe which will be loved by all and will be finished within minutes.
A lovely Chinese dish which can be made within minutes and is perfect for any occasion. Just try this out and let me know.

  2. Egg- 1 no
