Mealthy Tip

If you want a little heat to your orange chicken, brown a few chiles de arbol in the hot oil before adding chicken. You'll lightly season the oil and find a nice, even spiciness to the final dish. If you want a LOT of heat, try adding sliced Fresno chilies with the chicken.

Amazing orange chicken sauce! I added extra juice because I love the citrus notes. Way better than what you would get at the cheap Chinese food chains.

I followed the tip and browned a couple chiles de arbol in the hot oil before adding chicken. Such a great idea. They were spicy but you could still tell that you were eating orange chicken.

Awesome dish. I went with chicken thighs because I like the more tender cuts. I also used pure agave instead of honey.

We used 3 tablespoons of corn starch as this has the same ingredients as the Orange Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

The sauce had decent flavor but needed something more. I added a drop of wild orange essential oil to it after removing from the heat to give it more interest. Also, the chicken gets way over cooked with the provided directions. Next time, I would just sear it, leave it out while the sauce thickens, then finish it in the thickened sauce for a few minutes. There’s really no reason here to pressure cook at all.

This recipe sounded great. The ingredients were just what you want for orange chicken. Boy, were we disappointed! We ended up cooking another dinner. The first pressure cooker fail...

How much corn starch?

Stacey Mitchell says:

Very good but the time was too long for the chicken. Next time I will try the orange essential oil as another reviewer suggested and maybe a little brown sugar. I served with fresh green beans sautéed with garlic salt in a garlic infused grapeseed oil.
