Super Delicious Orange Walnut Chicken Recipes
Orange Walnut Chicken is a sweet, tangy treat. Some believe it's a Chinese dish, others have no idea where this delicious dish got it's start. As close as I can tell it was first made in China. As it gained popularity in the different countries, they added their own special touches to make it their own.
As this sweet, tangy dish gathered popularity it also gain a couple of new names. Depending on who you talk to it can be Orange Chicken, Tangerine Chicken, and even Orange Peel Chicken. As you can tell it has branched out.
The recipe I am including in this hub is an Orange Walnut Chicken. It's Orange Chicken with a twist. The walnuts add a satisfying crunch to this dish. I show how to make this dish to serve 6 people. The reason for this is so you will have extra chicken left over to use in two other dishes. This way you cook once and eat three meals. Hope you enjoy.
