This recipe is all over the internet so I don’t even know who originally made it and even though I don’t like pirating a recipe, since I don’t know who gets credit, I’ll just tell you Nicole saw it on Facebook, made it, loved it and we made it and served it to my aunt and uncle and parents while in Louisiana. Some people call it Orange Chicken. Some people do it in the crock pot without frying the chicken. You can do it just about any way you’d like but no matter which way you do it, it is so easy and so delicious!
The original recipe called for the following ingredients for the sauce:
- 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce
- 1 cup orange marmalade
- 2 T. soy sauce
For the fried chicken part, it calls for:
- 2-3 chicken breasts
- 1 cup flour/1 cup cornstarch (either or both, or even some recipes say flour/baking soda in equal proportions)
- 2 eggs
- Oil for frying
We did ours a little differently. This recipe is very easy to increase or decrease.
For 7 adults, we used 3 chicken breasts and had enough for all five of us to eat and then had leftovers for 3 of us to have it for another meal. Cutting chicken into bite sized pieces really extends it.
