Golden Orange Chicken

Super Easy Orange Chicken

I don’t claim that this is better than Panda or some other place.

I don’t have to cook when I do go to Panda.

Sometimes, that is better!

What I do know!

These are – Just the right mix of tart, sweet, sticky, and meaty in a golden,

easy to prepare sauce.

No more gooey fritter bites like I have gotten all to often at Panda.

“Where’s the meat?”

These are perfect and take less than an hour to make, from prep to table.
