TNT Orange Chicken

You can add chili flakes to spice more, this recipe is quite sweet with a small kick. Very orange. Very tasty. This is my own take on the dish

2 sliced Scallions
2 lbs chicken
1 tablespooon Orange Zest (or sliced orange peel)
2 tsp. minced garlic
3 tablespoon "sweet cooking chili"
1 tablespoon Orange Marmalade
1-2 cup oil
Cornstarch
1 egg

Break egg and mix in small bowl
Put chicken in egg, then coat in corn starch (potato starch is much better)
Cook chicken until crispy in oil.
Drain chicken, remove oil from wok.
"necklace" wok in chili oil (or regular oil, do not use sesame) This will result in the wok being oily and ready for sauce, use 1 tsp. oil.
add garlic and orange zest
quickly add the sweet cooking chile and orange marmalade
add scallions
add chicken and stir vigorously to coat. Your sauce should be thick and bubbly, if not, add Slurry = (cornstarch and water)

Enjoy and happy holidays.

What do you think of doing this with pork? I have a pork loin and this sounds yummy.

This would be good with pork or beef.. I would marinate the pork in sweet soy sauce or sweet ginger soy over night. That would help blend the flavors since pork is already salty.

Sweet Cooking Chili you will find in the ethnic section under Thai or chinese. It is a pan asian ingrediant, normally consisting of water, Chili, peppers, and garlic. Some are spicier than others.. I use it as the base for most of my asian dishes.

I made some orange chicken the other day using these portions and it turned out immaculate. The key is to use medium heat.

I practically live in an asian market and have a pantryful of asian condiments but have never seen anything called this. Is it chili paste? Why is it sweet if it doesn't have sugar in it? If it does have sugar, is it sweet chili sauce which comes in a bottle ? Like this

Yes it is like that. It is always in a glass bottle. You may never see it since the world supply of cooking chili is dwindling. It is sweet because I believe it is made the same way relish is.

Another good thing about it is how much flavor you get for such a small price.

Hi, Mikey. Would it be possible for you to post a photo of your bottle? I'm not familiar with it, either, but your recipe sounds great.

Any Thai sweet chili sauce will work. Most asian stores carry lots of brands.

I think this recipe sounds awesome, by the way.

Got G -- hope you are feeling better soon!
