I was a little intimidate at trying to make Orange Chicken, but it was suprisingly simple. I just had to remember to start it early enough that there was time for it to marinade. I can't wait to try this with tofu instead of chicken.

1 1/2 cups water
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Put ingredients in sauce pan, bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool. When sauce is cool add 1 cup of sauce to 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite sized pieces. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Refrigerate the remaining sauce.

Remove chicken from sauce.

Put 1 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
in a resealable bag. Add chicken pieces and shake.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in skillet. When skillet is hot, add chicken pieces. Brown on both sides. Remove chicken and place on papertowel covered plate.

Heat sauce on medium low, stir in chicken pieces and simmer about five minutes.

Serves 4
