A twist to the regular sweet and sour chicken recipe is this delicious deep fried chicken bite-size pops in orange sauce. This orange chicken recipe takes inspiration from the signature dish of Panda Express.
As we’re spending more time at home, this is the perfect recipe to recreate this iconic take-out favourite! A must-try with its sweet-savoury goodness kept us wishing we made more.
