Grab your chopsticks! This is one of my favorite dinner recipes! This Oriental Orange Chicken is like take out but made at home!

One of my favorite Friday nights is grabbing a movie and some take out! It’s simple but it’s nice to have an easy stress free night. I likw to just grab take out but it can get expensive and I’m not always sure what’s in it. This Oriental Orange Chicken is so easy! No need to grab take out when you can whip this dinner up in just a few minutes.

This juicy chicken isn’t fried like many other recipes, but don’t you worry. The only thing you are missing out on is the extra calories! This chicken is coated with a heavenly orange sauce last will have you taste buds dancing. The secret ingredient is sesame oil. If you don’t have any you can substitute other oil but I highly recommend buying some next time you are at the store. You don’t use much but it really boosts the flavor!

Serve it over rice and add some chop sticks for added fun!
