3 Ingredient Orange Chicken (Orange Marmalade BBQ)

by 247tasty

We’re big fans of Orange Chicken, it’s no secret. We are constantly on the hunt for new variants of this popular Chinese recipe from our classic Panda Express Copycat to Ground Orange Chicken. The most convenient version of Orange Chicken also called microwave magic. You now know that we know how to make a sweet, sweet orange sauce with a bit of kick if you tried any of our other recipe of Orange Chicken. We would certainly do it if every night we were able to make this popular Chinese dish.

One of the best components of easy foods like this Orange sauce Marmalade is to be tailored to your taste. We have suggestions for changing the aromas simply by swapping or adding one or two ingredients. This recipe uses frozen popcorn, but we like to make Chicken Nuggets a large batch of them and freeze them for fast dinner dishes such as this. But life is busy. We don’t have time to bust the wok and collect all the ingredients to make our favorite dish, sometimes. It’s so easy, that you can even take care of your children. After school, it makes a super snack they can do for themselves. The chicken can be cooked whatever you like. Over rice, I love serving orange chicken. After making your simple orange chicken, grab a film to watch and or set a date. Enjoy this mouthwatering dish with your family and friends.
