Orange Chicken

2-3 large chicken breasts (Cubed)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
a pinch of black pepper
1/2 Cup cornstarch
1/4 Cup flour
1Tbsp. Ginger (I would recommend using less, it was a little strong)
1tsp. garlic cloves or powder
1 can of chicken broth
crushed red peppers to taste

Orange Sauce:
1 orange
1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. water
5 Tbsp. sugar
5 Tbsp. chicken broth

mix egg, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. mix cornstarch and flour in another bowl. put all the pieces of diced chicken into the egg mixture, and cover the chicken, I do this just with my hands. then move it to the flour mixture and coat the chicken. fry chicken in a fry pan using a little bit of oil. once chicken in a golden brown color and is cooked through add ginger, garlic, red pepper, and chicken broth (only about 1/2 the can) simmer for about 10-15 min. or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
in another small bowl mix ingredients for orange sauce, soy sauce, water, sugar, and chicken broth, then zest the outside of an orange until it is completely bald and add to mixture. if you want a lot of the orange taste you can cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the mixture as well. stir mixture and add to your chicken, mix until coated with the sauce.

Serve with white rice or ham fried rice, recipe to follow. Enjoy! This might seem a little over whelming but it really was quiet easy, and way delicious, you can call me if you have any questions.
