Number of serving: 4
1 lb. chicken breast meat

1 egg white

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

4 cups vegetable oil to be used for frying

1 cup cornstarch

Orange Sauce :

1 cup water

1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 cup sugar

1/8 cup vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

4 teaspoons cornstarch

2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 tablespoon grated orange peel

2 tablespoons chopped scallion


  • Cut chicken breast into 1/2-inch cubes, set aside.
  • To make marinade – combine egg white, salt and sugar in a bowl and stir vigorously until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Add chicken cubes to marinade and stir to coat well.
  • To make orange sauce – combine water, ketchup, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, 4 teaspoons cornstarch and sesame oil; stir and set aside.
  • Place a pot over high heat. When pot is hot, add the 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and heat. Add orange peel and scallion and stir for about 20 seconds, taking care not to burn the orange peel.
  • Pour combined sauce ingredients into the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened, about 12-15 minutes.
  • Preheat 4 cups oil to 350-375°F. Meanwhile, put marinated chicken in the plastic baggie containing the cornstarch.
  • Shake chicken well for about 20 seconds or until chicken is covered with cornstarch. Shake off all excess cornstarch and fry chicken in hot oil until golden brown, approximately 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oil with a slotted spoon, drain well and set aside. Add fried chicken to pot with heated orange sauce, stir for about 30 seconds, and then serve immediately.
  • Serve with steamed rice.
