Easy Peasy Orange Chicken.

Easy Peasy Orange Chicken

With working full time Monday through Friday and part time on the weekends plus co-homeschooling with my husband, dinner has to be quick and easy.  I tried a bunch of crockpot recipes from Pinterest and to be honest they all tasted like nasty pot roast even though most of them were chicken and pork recipes.  BIG FAIL!

I wanted an easy orange chicken recipe and I found this one on Cooking for my Peace of Mind.  Go there for the full recipe details.

Ingredients:

Vegetable Oil

2 1/2 cups pancake mix (divided) or self-rising flour instead.

1 1/4 cups water

1 1/4 lbs. diced chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces

1 bottle of Panda Express Orange Sauce  (I searched high and low for this and found it at Wal-Mart)

Quick Recipe summary (go to original site for full recipe)

First coat the chicken and fry it in the pan.  Set aside the cooked chicken

Now coat the chicken with the bottle of Panda Express Orange Sauce.

While all this was happening we cooked a pot of jasmine rice and steamed snow peas in the microwave.

Layer the rice, snow peas, and chicken on a plate and enjoy one of the best dinners you’ve had in a while.
