Recipe: Copycat Panda Express Orange Chicken — Recipes from The Kitchn

With just one bite, it was clear to me why so many people love the orange chicken from Panda Express. Between the crispy chicken and the thick, sweet, lightly spiced blanket of sauce, it’s pretty irresistible. But this at-home version is even better than the original.

Bite-sized pieces of chicken are cooked until crispy, then coated with a sticky-sweet citrusy sauce with just a hint of heat. It’s everything you love and expect, without the greasiness that so often comes with takeout.
