The original recipe for this says that it's the copy cat recipe for Panda Express's Orange Chicken. Being that Panda Express's Orange Chicken is my very favorite item on their menu I beg to differ! Don't get me wrong this is a great recipe we all really enjoyed it, but it's not even close to the Panda Express recipe. What I like about this recipe is that it's really great the flavor is nice and mild yet has really stands on it's own. Next I would triple the amount of orange sauce. What I do not like about this recipe is the fact that it's time consuming. Yeah a little more time than I care to spend in the kitchen on a weekday.
