Sticky Orange Chicken and Rice

By April 25, 2011No Comments

I am a sucker for a sweet sauce over rice. You name it, I love it..teriyaki sauce, Thai peanut sauce, sweet & sour sauce, etc. I haven’t met a sauce I didn’t like. Another favorite flavor of mine is orange. I love this time of year when oranges are on sale. I love to zest and juice oranges and throw them in pancake batter, muffins, desserts, cakes, orange rolls, etc. When I am pregnant (don’t worry, the little dude is too young for that to be again) my number one craving is citrus. I pretty much love citrus anything. So, it is no wonder I had to play around with, and come up with the perfect Sticky Orange Chicken recipe. Since this is rice month, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my recipe with you. I have heard this tastes a lot like Panda Express’s Orange Chicken, but since I am too cheap to go try it out, I am going to claim mine is even better (I guess you will have to be the judge of that 😉

I do have to tell you, because I don’t usually cook with recipes, it is really hard for me to get exact amounts down for my created recipes. I have tried the best I could. However..if you find the sauce needs a little more salt, add more. If you like an even sweeter sauce, add more brown sugar. Like more of a kick, add more red pepper flakes. You get the idea. Play around with the recipe until you have it just right for your taste buds. Enjoy!
