This Panda Express Orange Chicken recipe tastes just like the takeout version with crispy chicken tossed in a sweet and spicy orange sauce.
Step 1 Mix together sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Step 2 Add rice ingredients to a rice cooker and cook.
Step 3 Toss chicken with cornstarch in a large bowl. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over med-high heat.
Step 4 Once oil is smoking, add chicken and stir fry for 6-7 minutes until browned and cooked through.
Step 5 Toss chicken with sauce, then serve over rice. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds, then serve and enjoy!
