3-Ingredient Orange Chicken Sauce Recipe

While I love the convenience of setting and forgetting dinner, I LOVE crispy orange chicken. Here’s a crockpot orange chicken version too! Growing up, getting chinese take-out was the best thing ever. I honestly ate cream cheese puffs for breakfast. My most recent favorite restaurant for orange chicken is Panda Express (YUM!) I have tried a few copycat recipes that used orange juice and I just hated them.

I thought I would try their 3 ingredient sauce on top and it turned out lovely! In fact, my husband was very excited to take leftovers to work the next morning (Note: he always “forgets” it but not this time :-) While it doesn’t taste exactly like the restaurant, it has a fresh orange zest flavor to it. I think even adding some pepper flakes for some heat would make it better! Someone also mentioned adding garlic and ginger but I haven’t tried it.
