Crispy BAKED Orange Chicken
Crispy coated tender pieces of chicken served with a sticky sweet orange glaze that is finger licking good. This recipe is baked not fried. Scooped over rice with a side of steamed broccoli it’s simply delicious.
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of mayo
1 tsp. dijon mustard
2 cups corn flake crumbs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Orange Sauce Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 cup of orange preserves
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tsp. crushed ginger
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon corn starch mixed with 1/8 cup of water
1/4 cup chopped scallions
Season corn flake crumbs with salt and pepper. Combine mustard and mayo. Coat chicken with mayo mixture then corn flake crumbs. Place on lightly greased baking sheet, spray with cooking oil (PAM) and cook in oven on 350′ for 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked. While the chicken cooks, prepare sauce by combining sauce ingredients (excluding the cornstarch and water) in a pot on the stovetop over medium heat. Bring to a boil,then add the cornstarch mixed with water and stir until sauce thickens.Once chicken is cooked, serve over rice with sauce and scallions.
Made this for dinner tonight- it was great!
I used orange marmalade since my store didn’t seem to have orange preserves and the chicken had a very strong orange flavor. Is that because I used marmalade and nos preserves??
Fabulous recipe otherwise!
funny. i also bought orange marmalade and my chicken sauce had a VERY strong orange flavor too. Your thoughts?
Hi! If you want it to have less of an orange flavor, skip the OJ and maybe use less Orange marmalade and add some brown sugar to sweeten it up!
Did you mean to spray the chicken with PAM? Or the pan?
I spray the pan with PAM so it’s lightly greased AND optional, if you want a crispier chicken then spray the chicken bites with PAM as well.
I used marmalade too. It has orange rind in it which makes it have a stronger orange flavor. It was still delicious!! Since orange preserves seems to be hard to find, I think Apricot preserves with the orange juice would work too.
I only have Selwyn Segal’s orange marmalade, it is very sweet, so I would only use a third of the recipes requirements, and of course the flavour wouldn’t dominate the other flavours,
I love this!
I have made this chicken a few times already, I love it and so does my family it taste way better than takeout.
