Baked Orange Chicken

This delicious and simple Baked Orange Chicken, is the perfect dinner on a busy night. It is also the BEST Chinese food, I have had in a while. It tastes so fresh and delicious, you are going to love it. All the goodness of restaurant food, in the comforts of your own home.

I have been on a big Chinese food kick lately. I recently made our Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken for dinner a few weeks ago and realized we had to try it with a zesty orange sauce.

This Baked Orange Chicken tastes just as good as take out and can be made in the comfort of your own home.

I love making restaurant food in sweats at home. It totally beats getting ready, getting everybody dressed, fighting to put on shoes with hungry kids, waiting for a table, then waiting to eat, and paying a giant tip at the end.

I think I may start making all the restaurant recipes at home, from here on out.

want more orange taste?

This sauce does have a hint of orange to it, but if you are looking for more, we recommend using some real orange.

I love to get my zester, or use the small side of a cheese grater, and grate some orange peel over my chicken, for a little more orange flavor. It is delicious.

could I deep fry this chicken?

You most definitely could deep fry the chicken, if you desire. I like to bake mine because fried food give me a little bit of a stomach ache, but you could most definitely fry, instead of bake, your chicken.

I will sometimes even skip the browning step, just because canola oil give me a little bit of a stomach ache.

what could I use in place of canola oil

If you are like me, you don’t love canola oil. It is great for cooking, however, it leave me feeling a little sick.

If you are looking to replace canola oil, I recommend using a light olive oil, or avocado oil.

    Made this for dinner tonight. It was a hit. My entire family loved it, even my three year old. But she likes things with a kick. I carried out the recipe exactly as written except I added chili garlic sauce instead of sriracha because that is what we buy at our house. The only thing I did was stir it halfway through the oven time. I was worried that the sauce would not thicken but it did. At the end, it was the perfect consistency. I served it with white rice and broccoli. Delicious recipe!
