Crispy Orange Chicken-N2MCC8

I probably say this all the time… but this chicken is awesome. I adapted it from Sugar Dish Me. It might be my favorite chicken ever. I’m not kidding. I never knew I needed it in my life until I made it this week for my New 2 Me Cooking Challenge.
I did 2 things different from the recipe. I used some Rice Krispies, because I ran out of Panko bread crumbs. L The next time I make this I’ll use less bread crumbs any way. I had about ½ cup left over after I tossed the chicken. AND I didn’t toss the chicken in the sauce, I drizzled it over the top when I was serving it.
I used the juice from the same orange I zested for the sauce. That saaaaauce… GENIUS. It’s got a little kick from the sriracha & red pepper, but the orange zest/ juice balances it out really well.
Overall… this Crispy Orange Chicken gets thumbs up from both of us. The breaded chicken is great by itself, and I think the sauce would be really good on pork too!

  1. So glad you enjoyed it!!! Rice Krispies in place of Panko was pretty brilliant!

      Thanks! You created an awesome recipe. I just played with it a little bit. I love using Rice Krispies in place of higher calories things! I crush them up and use them as breading a lot, even a couple of times on zucchini/ squash!
