- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish
- Start by whisking together the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger in a bowl to create the marinade.
- Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour half of the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the bag, reserving the marinade, and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 6-7 minutes per side.
- In a separate bowl, combine the cornstarch and water to make a slurry.
- Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
- Using the same skillet, pour in the reserved marinade and bring to a simmer. Add the cornstarch slurry and cook until the sauce thickens, stirring constantly.
- Slice the chicken into strips and drizzle the thickened orange sauce over the top.
- Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
- Serve your Deliciously Tangy Orange Chicken over steamed rice and enjoy!
