When I came across this recipe, I knew it was one I had to try out. First off, who doesn’t love orange chicken?! My favorite orange chicken came from “China Village,” our go-to Chinese takeout spot growing up. As I got older, I learned the sad reality that orange chicken was so very far from authentic Chinese cuisine, but it’s legendary hold on the heart’s of millions of Americans is undeniable. As it turns out, Panda Express’ executive chef is actually accredited as being the INVENTOR of orange chicken.
