Chef Jeff's Orange Chicken

Tuesday, May, 5 2015

Chef Jeff’s Crispy Orange Chicken
Serves 6-8

Corn Starch - 1/3 cup (approximately)
Garlic salt - 1 T.
Black pepper, coarse ground - 1 T.
Chicken breasts, cut in small chunks -1½ pounds
Oil, canola or other - ¼ cup
Onions, medium shards - 1  cup
Bell pepper, red, strips - 1 cup
Pea pods, snow, fresh - 8 ounces
Orange juice - 2 cups
Corn Starch - 3 T.
Brown sugar - 2 T.
Teriyaki sauce - 1 T.
Cayenne pepper, ground - ½ tsp. (or less)
Water chestnuts, sliced, canned, drained - 8 ounces 
Mandarin oranges, canned, drained - 8 ounces
Chow Mein noodles - 1 cup

1. Combine the corn starch, garlic salt and black pepper.  Thoroughly dust the chicken pieces in this coating mixture.

2. In a large skillet, fry the chicken pieces in the oil until brown and crispy.

3. Remove the chicken from the pan and add the onions and red peppers.  Sauté over high heat. When about half done, add the snow pea pods.

4. Thoroughly combine the orange juice, corn starch, brown sugar, teriyaki sauce and cayenne pepper.  Pour this sauce mixture into the hot pan.  Stir frequently - when the sauce simmers, the corn starch will thicken.

5.  Fold in the previously browned crispy chicken, water chestnuts and mandarin oranges and heat thoroughly. 

6. Serve immediately over a bed of white or brown rice.  Garnish the Crispy Orange Chicken with the chow mien noodles.
