February 3rd marks the first day of the Year of the Golden Rabbit, according to the Chinese zodiac. According to Chinese tradition, the year of the rabbit brings a year in which you can calm your nerves and catch your breath. For Chinese New Year, here is an easy recipe for a classic Chinese-American food.
Orange chicken is one of my favorite things to order when I go out to a eat at a Chinese food restaurant. Even better is making it in the comfort of you own home, and paying much less! I originally wanted to try a deconstruction/reconstruction with this recipe, but failed miserably. I won’t go into too many details, but lets just say my fried rice balls ended up being a baked eggy mess instead. Luckily, I saved a portion of the orange sauce and was able to save the dinner. This recipe is one for everybody to keep in mind because it tastes just like the restaurant version.
