  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp cornstarch, divided
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup oil (for frying)
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • Orange Marinade:
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth + 4 Tbsp Orange Juice Concentrate OR 1 cup chicken broth + 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 1 Tbsp orange zest (I did not add)
  • 1 tsp Sriracha, or more, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tsp salt


1. Combine all ingredients for the Orange Sauce together & stir until sugar & salt is dissolved (Chicken broth, Orange Juice Concentrate, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, cloves garlic (minced), orange zest, Sriracha, ground ginger, white pepper & salt).

2. Put the cubed chicken and 2/3 cup sauce into a ziplock bag & marinate for at least 30 minutes turning the bag at least 3 times.

3. Combine the 2 tablespoons water & 2 tablespoons corn starch in a saucepan. Stir together until no lumps are seen. Add the marinade liquid, stir & cook until thickened (about 2-3 minutes after it comes to a boil). Do not boil for too long or it will become thin again. Remove from heat & keep warm.

4. When the chicken has marinated and ready to be cooked drain it.
