    I liked the taste of the sauce. I tried air frying the chicken and it turned pretty well. But next time I’ll fry in a pan with oil. Betcha I’m gonna like it better. 😮

    Great recipe. The batter was light and the orange flavor was natural and fresh. My family really enjoyed. It does take a full hour to make and u have to make the sauce first and let it sit while u fry all the chicken bites.

    I followed the ingredients as it is. The procedure got me confusing honestly, so I cooked them differently. Fry the breaded chicken, put the sauce in the pan until it thicken then pour in the fried chicken. Came out good!

    Pretty good, my family loved it. I wonder if you could marinate the chicken in something to give it more flavor. All the flavor is on the outside and the chicken was a little bland. Maybe I need to make the pieces smaller. Will try that next time. I served it with rice and garlic green beans. Yum!

    Little fiddely with frying the batches etc and next time I would add pepper and salt to the flour. Also added some fresh chili for presentation. Only used 1 orange and no zest as not a household that’s big on orange chicken. Just wanted to use up an old orange.

    Flavorful and easy! It tastes the same every time we make it. It does take over an hour between the frying and the sauce, but definitely worth it.
