I need an orange chicken recipe!

I don't want a ton of sugar, or to have to fry it. That's pretty much all I found.

  • I use this sauce .  I make it ahead of time and then I stir friy chicken, oinion and broccoli in a pan.  I then toss in the sauce to coat and add a small can of pineapple tid bits.  Heat it all the way through and serve over rice.  It is fabulous.

  • It is just going to have a tone of sugar in it. It is a sweet sauce. However how much sauce you use can help limit the amount of sugar in the actual dish.

  • Oven-Crisp Orange Chicken

    1 beaten egg
    1/2 of 6-ounce can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons butter or margarine
    1 2-1/2 to 3 pound broiler-fryer chicken, cut up

    Combine beaten egg, orange juice concentrate, and soy sauce. Stir to mix well.

    Combine crumbs, paprika, and salt.

    Melt butter in 9 by 13 inch baking pan.

    Dip chicken pieces in orange mixture, coat with crumbs.

    Place chicken, skin side up and so pieces do not touch, in baking pan. Sprinkle with any remaining crumbs.

    Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes. Do not turn.

  • A can of OJ before it is reconstituted has a ton sugar to. 20-25 grams per 8 oz when diluted to make juice. Just so you know.

  • Why not substitute Splenda and cut the amount - I wonder if that would work?
