    Orange Chicken, a Nation wide favorite. This is a nock off of the Panda Express Orange Chicken Recipe. Fairly easy to prepare. With a delicious Orange Flavor. Served over rice your family will love it! This recipe calls for mixing the ingredients to coat the chicken into kind of a batter. I have tried it both ways. I suggest dipping the chicken in the egg mixture then coating it with the flour mixture. It will work both ways the choice is your. Enjoy
