I’ve discovered an amazing recipe for sweet and sour chicken and it’s always a hit when I make it. The only down side is that it takes FOREVER to make, so I have to save it for days with no after school activities. Whenever my kids stay with my parents, they rave about Nana’s orange chicken. She gets a kit to make it, which is kind of a cheat to me, so I had to find something different!
Most of my dishes end up looking messy, but this was a big hit.
To make this stupid easy orange chicken, you need four things:
1) chicken (obviously)
2) sweet orange marmalade (I used Smuckers 13oz)
3) barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Sweet and Spicy 18oz)
4) soy sauce (I use Kikoman)
Start by cubing your chicken and cooking it in a frying pan. Once its cooked, dump in the whole bottle of barbecue sauce, the marmalade, and 4Tbsp of soy sauce. Stir until it’s all mixed together and let it simmer while you make rice.
Serve over rice and enjoy! My kids loved this. This is actually my second time testing this out, and I can tell you I’m not an orange chicken fan. I’ll deal with it a time or two every month though because the kids love it and it’s easy to make. Can we say #momlife ??
