Baked orange chicken

*serves 2-3

Ingredients :

1 lbs chicken tenderloin, cubed

2 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

1 egg, beaten

1 spring onion, chopped

Sauce

2 Tbsp water

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup granulated sugar

3 Tbsp vinegar

2 Tbsp soy sauce

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp crushed red pepper

1 tsp corn starch + 1 Tbsp water

 

Directions :

1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.(You can use foil but I find parchment paper works better.)Dip the chicken in the egg and coat them with breadcrumbs. Place them on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.

2. Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a sauce pan, add all sauce ingredients except corn starch+water mixture. Bring it to boil. Stir corn starch + water mixture before adding in and add it to the sauce and keep stirring until it starts boiling again. Simmer until thickens, 2-3 minutes more. 

3. Toss chicken in the sauce or drizzle the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle chopped spring onion.
