Mandarin chicken is one of the most requested Chinese recipes on my website. My readers started emailing me a couple of year ago when popular Chinese joint Panda Express removed Mandarin chicken from their menu.
So, for those who have been waiting to replicate this dish at home, I’ve got you the easiest and most delicious recipe that tastes like Panda Express or the malls, if not better.
This is a super quick, healthy and simple recipe to make and takes only 5 ingredients: chicken, ginger, soy sauce, lemon juice and sugar. First, you pan-seared the chicken (breast or thighs), then you make the sauce. Slice the chicken into pieces and drizzle a load of the citrusy sauce on the chicken and serve with rice.
In the United States, another type of Mandarin Chicken served at Chinese restaurants is practically Orange Chicken. I know it’s confusing, but both are well loved by many people, including the pickiest eaters and kids. Try out both my recipes and see what you like. Happy eating!
