** I made this Sunday night and I LOVED it!! I love Chinese food as a whole and when we have little money for take out or even just don’t feel like going anywhere, this recipe is perfect!! My 2 year old LOVED this, so it is great for kids as well! Give this a try I promise you will not be disappointed!**
For the Sauce:
1 cup of BBQ sauce (use your favorite kind, I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
1 cup sweet orange marmalade (use your favorite kind, I just grabbed the store brand)
2 TBS soy sauce
3-4 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 cup of flour or cornstarch
oil ( I used vegetable oil)
In a sauce pan, add the BBQ sauce, marmalade, and soy sauce. Turn the heat on low and let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring a few times.
Meanwhile, cut your chicken into cubes. In one bowl beat the 2 eggs, while in the other bowl mix the dry ingredients.
Dip pieces of chicken in the egg and then cover in the flour or cornstarch. Set on a clean plate.
Add a thin layer of oil to a frying pan and turn your stove on medium high heat. Once the oil sizzles, add the chicken to the pan in a single layer. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes per side until it is brown and cooked through.
Set the cooked pieces on a plate covered in paper towels, to let it drain.
Once all the chicken is cooked, add it to the sauce and toss.
Serve over white rice or what ever you want.
**COOK’S NOTES: I did not change too much of this recipe. However, I did stop coating the chicken because it was really taking a while, I did use 4 breasts and I had enough for 2 adults and 1 kid for dinner and enough left over for all of us to have it for lunch the next day. You do not have to bread the chicken if you do not want to, it is still good. **
