Orange Ginger Chicken

This is an orange chicken recipe I have used, more for the cooking technique than ingredient amounts. I think the original called for 8 garlic cloves, I changed it down to 3. Taste the sauce before adding to the chicken/ veggies. This recipe makes a lot too. I use less chicken and keep the sauce amount about the same and pour over rice.


1 1/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed from 6-8 oranges
•2 teaspoon orange zest
•1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
•3 tablespoons ginger, freshly shredded
•3 cloves of garlic, minced
•2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
•2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce ( I have used a minced serrano or thai chili pepper, heat amounts can vary)
•1 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
•2 teaspoon brown sugar
•1/4 teaspoon black pepper
•4 medium (1 1/4 lbs) chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
•1 tablespoon corn starch
•1 tablespoon water
•1/4 cup scallions, green parts only, sliced
•2 tablespoon black or white sesame seeds, toasted


In a glass bowl, whisk orange juice, orange zest, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, 1-tablespoon olive oil, Sriracha sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and black pepper.
Place the chicken in a ziplock bag and pour 1/3 of the mixture in the bag. Seal the bag and place it in the fridge. Let it marinade for an hour.
Heat 1-tablespoon olive oil on a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Remove chicken from the bag and discard the marinade.
Add chicken, in 2 batches, and cook each batch for 6-7 minutes. Place the cooked chicken on a clean plate. Set aside.
Pour the rest of the marinade into the now-empty skillet and cook until boiling over medium high heat, 2-3 minutes.
In the mean time, whisk together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl. It will be like a white paste. Whisk it into the marinade and let it boil for a minute.
Return chicken into the skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until chicken registers 160 F when a thermometer is inserted in some of the pieces of chicken.
Serve it immediately over rice. Sprinkle it with scallions and sesame seeds.

Thank you for sharing, Whisk! This sounds delicious - I love the combination of orange, ginger, and soy sauce. I can see using this marinade recipe for grilled chicken thighs. Copied and saved!
