<p>I never tasted Orange Chicken in India. After marraige when we went to Dallas, USA , there one of my husband's friend reffered us Panda Express, the famous
American Chinese chain restaurant of Texas. There we first tasted their famous Orange Chicken, Kung pao chicken, and many more. The combos are very pocket friendly, so we often used to visit the place mainly for dinner. The taste is not too good, but it is ok and may be $ 15 to 16 for two of us. So we never expected too much. Their Orange Chicken' was my husband's favorite, but I didn't like that dish, as I don't like sweets that much, specially in non-veg items. But my sweet lover husband never miss Panda Express's orange chicken, whenever he visited that place. In rice/noodle+2 sides combo, one must be Orange chicken for him. After returning from Dallas, if anything he misses,it is the famous Orange Chicken from Panda Express. So I was thinking of making this for long time, but somehow it never happened. Sometime for my not too sweet love, or sometime just I ignored or I've simply forgot about it. But recently in a Facebook food group, someone posted Pannda Express's Orange Chicken picture, and I recall my wish
to make it for my husband. But I was scared about the sweet taste of it, if I would not able to have it, it'll be total waste, and I won't be able to write the recipe.
So I just recreated it in my way, without any recipe guideline. and the result was finger licking good, even I loved it.
So let's have a look of the procedure...</p>
