Copy Cat Panda Express Orange Chicken Recipe

Have you tried the Orange Chicken at Panda Express? If not, you are truly missing out on a delicious chicken dish! I like to eat out sometimes but it always seems like a big ordeal to get 5 people ready and out the door for dinner on the town. As much as I like Orange Chicken from Panda Express, I like this homemade Orange Chicken Recipe better! I’m going to be honest, this dish is a little more involved than most of the recipes on our site. But it’s totally worth it in my opinion. We hardly ever have leftovers and I’ve learned to double the recipe so that we can have leftovers for lunch the next day.
