How to Make Spicy Orange Sesame Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Season the chicken with the spices listed. And allow to marinate for about 10 mins. Once fully seasoned, coat each piece in a thorough coating of cornstarch.
  2. Heat your oil to 375, once the chicken is fully coated, fry once for 3-5 minutes, until the semi crunchy. The chicken isn't suppsoed to be fully cooked yet, so don't worry. Allow to cool, then fry again until a golden brown color is achieved. Your chicken should be fully cooked and extra crunchy by then!
  3. (Optional Step) In a small sauce pot, heat the Orange marmalade until a looser consistency has formed. And pass through a fine sieve to get rid of any rind/pith. Then add the rest of the "Sauce" ingredients listed above, and set aside to cool
  4. In a large wok or high sided skillet, take about 3 tablespoons of the hot oil, and transfer it into the skillet. Sautee the pepper and onions. Once translucent, add the sauce mixture and stir to combine. If your sauce is too thin, take 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch and a bit of water, mix to combine, and add some to the sauce until desired consistency is achieved. Add your chicken, and toss to coat in the sticky glaze, and heat through. Garnish with sesame seeds, and enjoy with a side of rice
