Cheater Orange Chicken!

Do you LOVE orange chicken but hate the hassle of deep-frying? I know I do! That's why I came up with this "cheater" version using Tyson Chicken Strips. I know it sounds a bit weird but these crispy strips were just perfect! I just baked them up according to the package directions and made the orange sauce on the side. Then I just tossed the chicken in the thickened sauce and served it on top of rice. For something extra special, I also sprinkled some sesame seeds on top. A perfect restaurant quality meal here's my simple recipe so you can make the same at home!


1 lb frozen crispy chicken strips
1 Tbsp oil
1 red bell peppers, diced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 c orange juice
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Siracha (or however spicy you like it!)
1 Tbsp cornstarch
sesame seeds, for garnish
sliced green onions, for garnish
grated orange zest, for garnish
cooked rice, for serving


1. Bake (or microwave) chicken strips according to package directions. Let cool slightly and cut into bite-size pieces.

2. Heat oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add bell pepper and cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add ginger and garlic, cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

3. Stir in orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, Siracha and cornstarch until smooth. Let simmer until slightly thickened, 5 minutes.

4. Stir in chicken and toss to coat with sauce. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds, green onion and orange zest.
