Impress Your Family With Bistro’s Orange Chicken Recipe

Just follow these easy steps and you will have an Orange Chicken plate as good as your favorite bistros:

  1. For this easy orange chicken recipe, you will need to grab the following ingredients: 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flour, 2-3 T oil, 4 minced garlic cloves, 4-6 chopped green onions, 3 T soy sauce, 3 T orange juice concentrate, ½ c sugar, and ½ c vinegar.
  2. The first thing that you need to do is to chop the chicken breasts into bite size pieces and seasoned it with some salt and pepper, then coat it with flour. If you want to make coating the chicken faster, instead of turning one after the other on a bowl with flour, just throw the entire thing on a large self sealing bag and give it a good shake to coat every single piece.
  3. Once all the chicken have been coated  with flour, heat a little bit of oil in a pan and add your chicken in. Heat it through until it turns brown.
  4. Add the garlic and green onion to the pan and sauté them until soft and tender. You might need to add more oil to your pan at this point to cook your orange chicken recipe. For additional flavor, you can also add some orange rind and peppers, but these are optional. If you like intense flavors though, be sure to go for it.
  5. The next thing that you need to do is to add the liquid part of the orange chicken recipe. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, and orange juice concentrate to the mix, plus the sugar. Stir it constantly and mix all of the ingredients together. Make sure that all pieces of the chicken are coated with the mixture and cook it through until it is just good and bubbly.
  6. This is fantastic when you serve it on top of a piping bowl of rice and enjoy a home cooked orange chicken meal! If you do not want rice however, you can also serve this with some noodles to make a stir fry version and it will taste just as delicious as you favorite orange chicken recipes from the big bistros!

Make The Perfect Baked Chicken For Your Family

Impress your family and friends with this Baked Chicken Recipe!

1.    Prepare the following ingredients: 1 chicken whole or cut up, olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh or dried herbs of your choice, carrots, garlic, onions and your choice of wine.

2.    Clean the chicken by removing all of the giblets inside of the cavity of the chicken. Rinse the chicken after with tap water and pat dry using kitchen towels.

3.    Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper and place inside a baking dish. Rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil to crisp up the outside while leaving the inside tender and moist.

4.    Place the chicken inside the oven and bake without any cover for an hour to an hour and a half or until the skin of the chicken is golden brown and the meat is cooked through. One way to test if this simple baked chicken recipe is done is to shake hands with the thighs of the chicken. If the thighs feel firm and meaty, your chicken is done.

5.    Other ways to check if the chicken is finished baking is through the use of instant red meat thermometer. The internal temperature that tells you a baked chicken is done is 170 degrees for the breast meat and 18i0 for the thighs.

6.    After taking out your chicken from the oven, make sure you allow it to rest before you carve it.

7.    You can make a little sauce to go with your baked chicken by deglazing your pan with your choice of wine, about a cup, and adding in some vegetables like carrots, garlic, onions, and fresh or dried herbs.

Try This Chicken Recipe – You Will Not Be Disappointed

On its own, this baked chicken recipe is really a fantastic way to end a night. Certainly nothing smells better than a kitchen filled with the aroma of a chicken fresh off the oven! But if you are looking for more great ways on how to prepare your baked chicken, here are more tips to busy yourself with:

1.    If you want to add more flavor and a tangy taste to your chicken, try squeezing in some lemon juice on the skin of your chicken and on the cavity as well.

2.    Make sure that your chicken is cooked through because eating raw chicken or a partially cooked on is not safe to eat.

3.    Lastly, to take your baked chicken recipes up a notch, try to experiment and add your favorite dry spice to your chicken for an added depth of flavor and aroma.
