Panda Express Orange Sauce Chicken

disclaimer: I bought this out of my own pocket but affiliate links may be included.

The other day, I was at Smart & Final and came across a bottle of Panda Express's Orange Sauce and I had to snatch it up.  Emma LOVES Panda Express but we rarely go because I am allergic to shellfish and they cook their shrimp and chicken in the same oil.  I have a few copycat recipes saved on Pinterest but you know what? Bottle? Easy peasy.  I'll give it a shot.

I coated chicken with cornstarch and cooked it in oil.

Easy.  Nothing to it, really.  I have been in a bit of a writing/blogging/job/cooking funk and haven't felt much like doing anything except being lazy.  haha.

When the chicken was cooked and browned, I added half the bottle of sauce to it and let it simmer and thicken up and then served over rice.

I thought it was good and definitely helped with the cravings for Panda but... it was a lot more vinegary than I recall the sauce being BUT it does work for now. I liked it.  We ate it up.  I think next time, I will do a bit more with the chicken (it may be the bland chicken)  and maybe add some more soy sauce and orange marmalade to the sauce.

I will definitely buy it again.

If you would like to try it, too, you can find it at your local store (maybe?) or definitely on Amazon: Panda Express Orange Sauce
