Orange Juice Chicken is more or less the same as sweet and sour chicken, or some version of the popular dish anyway. I have been making this dish for years now, and I kept adding more and more Orange Juice each time, so by now this is commonly known as Orange Juice Chicken in our house.
I absolutely love the flavor combination of Chicken and Orange and I know there are loads of recipes out there which are basically the same, but I think, for us anyway, I have perfected the dish, not only with the quantity of Orange Juice but also the final mixing of the cooked Chicken and the Sauce.
The batter coated Chicken needs to be deep-fried until the outside is crisp, then kept aside until the Sauce is done. If you can get the Sauce done at the same time as the last batch of Chicken, that would be perfect. (The Sauce can of course be cooked ahead of time and warmed up just before you want to add the Chicken)
All that’s needed then, is to quickly and gently add the cooked Chicken to the Sauce, heat only a little, stirring slightly to cover the Chicken in the Sauce and finally to serve as soon as you can in order to keep the crispness of the Chicken bits.
