Orange-Orange and Orange...Whenever I out for shopping vegetables, i only find Orange.The season is for Orangey, so why not try something with orange. I love to do an experiment with chicken, so the first thing, come into my mind is Orange Chicken. I tasted the dish first in a nearby restaurant in my locality, and from that time I determined to make its own. It is an American Chinese Dish and easily available in all American fast food centers. My hubby loves it too much. So I prepared the dish yesterday, as weekend special dinner.

      The Panda Express version of Orange Chicken is my kids very favorite food. I generally don't fry chicken in oil at home, so I make a version where I coat the chicken in cornstarch and pan fry and I buy the Panda Express sauce. I'd love to make my own though and will certainly try yours! Beautiful picture.
