Jeff's been hankering for orange chicken lately, so we got the Top Secret Recipes cookbook out of the library, which had a recipe for Panda Express orange chicken. I'm too lazy to type up the whole thing right now, and they don't have the whole recipe on their website. It turned out well, and satisfied the craving pretty well. The sauce was a touch too sweet for me. I need to buy a kitchen thermometer, since I have no idea how hot the oil was. Also, I discovered that not being able to see the chicken as it's cooking is unnerving for someone who's paranoid about cooking chicken. Really, the whole deep-frying thing, while tasty, is a pain in the ass, hot and messy. Next time around, I'll bread and bake the chicken. It won't be quite the same dish, but it'll be 10 times easier. However, it is nice to know how to make properly breaded chicken. So, overall, a lot of work, but yum.
I'm sure I'll end up tweaking the recipe, but I was having problems finding a recipe for good old American Chinese breaded chicken, so that part, at least, was a huge help.
