Orange chicken is a popular Chinese dish in the United States. Called 陈皮鸡 in Chinese language, orange chicken is of Hunan origin. As with most Chinese recipes served in the United States, the likes of Panda Express have butchered it to a goopy, sticky, and unappetizing mess. So, when my readers requested for my orange chicken recipe, I resolved to share a great recipe for orange chicken.
Orange chicken (also known as orange peel chicken or tangerine chicken) derives its name from the use of dried orange peel (陈皮) in the recipe. As dried orange peel is not commonly available for most people, I used fresh orange zest as a replacement, which works well. As orange chicken is originally a Hunan dish, you can’t do without some dried red chilies.
