Orange Chicken and Panda Express go together like the Big Mac and McDonald’s and the Whopper and Burger King. When you pick up your Combo Plate, you always have to fill one of your entrees with the delicious sweet and tangy, Orange Chicken.
Panda Express seems to be a staple in most strip malls or shopping centers. Currently as of the writing of this post, they are only in 45 states with the only holdouts in the North East of the US. (Sorry Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.)
Finding this recipe was a difficult task and took a while to perfect, but this is my best guess and I think it comes pretty dang close.
Orange Chicken from Panda Express
The timeless classic that is Orange Chicken from Panda Express. It is quick and easy to make and sure to please everyone.
Cooking and Serving
Trim the Chicken into bite sized chunks. Throw the chicken bites into a couple ziplock bags and add the egg, salt, pepper, flour, corn starch, and soy sauce. Slowly add water to make this an even coated batter. Let this sit in the fridge for 1 hour.
Heat up some oil for frying (enough to cover the chicken). Fry the chicken until golden brown. Drain the chicken and wait 3 minutes before adding them into the sauce.
Add all sauce ingredients into a pot and heat until a slow simmer, constantly stirring. Cook until a dark golden brown.
When you go to Texas Roadhouse, what do you think of?
Besides the Hot Rolls and Cinnamon Butter…
And their steaks…
Thats right! Their Rattlesnake Bites.
Bursting with cheese and jalapenos, it is the perfect compliment to any great comfort meal. We are giving you the keys to the city here and giving you a copycat recipe for one of the best appetizers known to man.
Texas Roadhouse Rattlesnake Bites
A perfect blend of Mozzarella sticks and Jalapeno Poppers.
Take the shredded cheese and jalapenos that you diced and combine them in a bowl.
Take a small handful and shape into balls about 1.5" and compress them nicely.
After shaping the balls, place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Preheat the deep fryer to 350 degrees
Take a bowl and add the flour. In another bowl, mix the egg and milk. What you are doing here is making a breading station.
In the last bowl mix the bread crumbs and seasonings.
Roll the balls in the flour mixture, then dipping into the milk and then coat with bread crumbs. Throw them into the fryer.
3-4 minutes is all you need or until golden brown.
