What’s 4 Dinner-Orange Chicken

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 large Eggs, beaten
  • 2 c. panko bread crumbs
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Juice and zest of 2 oranges
  • 1/3 c. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 c. honey

  • 2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 c. cooked jasmine rice

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Set up a dredging station with one bowl of flour, one of beaten eggs, and one of panko. Dredge the chicken in flour, then coat in eggs and cover in panko. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange chicken on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until no longer pink, 18 to 20 minutes.

  5. Transfer chicken to a large bowl and toss in orange sauce.
  6. Serve over rice with orange zest, sesame seeds, and scallions.
