Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir cornstarch into orange juice until all lumps are gone.
  2. Combine orange juice mixture, sugar, soy sauce, zest, 1/2 tsp sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook until sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon (about 5 minutes). If the sauce fails to thicken, mix some more cornstarch with water and add it to the mixture.
  3. Add flour, salt, and pepper to a medium ziplock bag.
  4. Add chicken and toss until chicken is completely coated.
  5. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Add chicken pieces. Cook for 3 minutes until browned on one side, then turn over and cook for approximately 3 minutes on the other side until cooked through.
  6. Pour sauce over chicken.
  7. To serve, toss with broccoli and serve over pasta or rice.
