Sichuan Orange Chicken
Why order take-out when you can make a homemade version of this Chinese restaurant-favorite before delivery even arrives?
Why This Recipe Works
Prepared from soybeans and seasonings, dark, slightly sweet Hoisin sauce was an invaluable addition to our Sichuan Orange Chicken recipe. For rich orange flavor, we combined orange juice and orange zest. Red bell pepper and scallions provided flavor and textural contrast to the tender chicken breasts.
Cooking the chicken in a smoking-hot skillet ensured it cooked through without drying out.
