Cheesecake Factory Evelyn's Favorite Pasta

Penne

Garlic

Olive oil

Roasted eggplant

Pine nuts

Kalamata olives

Sun-dried tomato

Broccoli

Peppers

Parmesan cheese

Just gather the ingredients cook your pasta and toss it all together. Other ingredients that I can guess on are salt and maybe they add some basil, oregano and/or parsley. Also be sure not to overcook the broccoli - lightly steam it and then give it an ice-bath to cool down and stop the cooking process.

Cheesecake Factory Orange Chicken

1 1/2 pound Chicken thighs -- skinless trimmed and cut in 1 1/2-inch pieces

3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

3/4 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed)

1 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest

8 strips orange peel (each about 2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide)

6 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup dark brown sugar -- packed

3 cloves garlic -- minced or pressed

1 piece (1 inch size) ginger -- grated

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon cornstarch PLUS

2 teaspoons cornstarch

2 tablespoons water (cold)

8 small whole dried red chiles -- optional

***Coating and Frying***

3 large egg whites

1 cup cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3 cups peanut oil

FOR THE MARINADE AND SAUCE: Place chicken in 1-gallon zipper-lock bag; set aside. Combine chicken broth, orange juice, grated zest, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, and cayenne in large saucepan (with at least 3-quart capacity); whisk until sugar is fully dissolved. Measure out 3/4 cup mixture and pour into bag with chicken; press out as much air as possible and seal bag, making sure that all pieces are coated with marinade. Refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes, but no longer.

Bring remaining mixture in saucepan to boil over high heat. In small bowl, stir together cornstarch and cold water; whisk cornstarch mixture into sauce. Simmer sauce, stirring occasionally, until thick and translucent, about 1 minute. Off heat, stir in orange peel and chiles (sauce should measure 1 1/2 cups); set sauce aside.

FOR THE COATING: Place egg whites in pie plate; using fork, beat until frothy. In second pie plate, whisk cornstarch, cayenne, and baking soda until combined. Drain chicken in colander or large mesh strainer; thoroughly pat chicken dry with paper towels. Place half of chicken pieces in egg whites and turn to coat; transfer pieces to cornstarch mixture and coat thoroughly. Place dredged chicken pieces on wire rack set over baking sheet; repeat with remaining chicken.

TO FRY THE CHICKEN: Heat oil in 11- to 12-inch Dutch oven or straight-sided sauté pan with at least 3-quart capacity over high heat until oil registers 350 degrees on instant-read or deep-fry thermometer. Carefully place half of chicken in oil one piece at a time; fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes, turning each piece with tongs halfway through cooking. Transfer chicken to large plate lined with paper towels. Return oil to 350 degrees and repeat with remaining chicken.

      I just tried the Orange Chicken - its delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

      Question: Are the orange peels really required for added taste ? They make the mixing of the chicken with the sauce post-frying quite messy.
