This was based off a Pei Wei (PF Chang's fast food little sister) dish. I was a little hesitant about the recipe because it was from a source I hadn't used before (I am learning to take caution on the internet in regards to recipes). However, it turned out great, but I already said that, didn't I. I made some serious adjustments to the recipes between not having oranges and not liking to fry foods. It was a hit though and everyone loved it.
Orange Peel Chicken
adapted from PF Chang (supposedly)
1 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 green onions, sliced
1 c tomato sauce
1/2 c water
1/4 c sugar
2 T chili garlic sauce (optional)
1 T soy sauce
4 chicken breast fillets (2 whole breasts), cut into bite sized pieces
peel from 1/4 orange, julienned (18" thick strips), optional
Place olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and green onions and saute for 30 seconds. Add tomato sauce, water, sugar, chili garlic sauce, and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Simmer 5 - 6 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Set aside.
In a wok or large skillet, heat a couple of T olive oil. Add the chicken and stir fry, until chicken is cooked. Add the orange peel and cook 30 seconds before adding the sauce. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring gently a couple of times, or until the sauce thickens. Serve on brown or white rice.
