Orange Chicken has a combination between sour and sweet flavors. The rice vinegar gives it the tang, while the honey gives it the sweetness. 

Orange Chicken (tso's)

Orange Chicken tso’s has some heat to it from the addition of the red chilies, typically we make the spicer version of this dish since we like a like a little heat. You probably have tried this before as its pretty popular in many Asian restaurants across North America.

Typically in the restaurants it’s made with boneless chicken breasts and mixed with onions, red peppers or other vegetables.  Today I’m making it with boneless chicken thighs, since this is what we have on hand. 

Orange Chicken (tso's) with rice

Keep in mind Orange Chicken tso’s is slightly spicier than regular Orange Chicken. If you prefer no spice to this dish, simply omit the chilies. 

 

Notes: You can use fresh oranges if you prefer that to orange juice in this recipe.

OR if you want to buy the Orange Sauce, which is not as healthy but just as good. I would recommend this brand, LEE KUM KEE it tastes most authentic!
