This was a time consuming dish (about an hour all up) but oh my gosh, was it so good!
I found the recipe on Pinterest and followed it exactly except replaced the spring onions with white onions because I didn't have any.
I thought I'd share a bit about it and the recipe which you can get here.
Orange Chicken tips:
- Use half cornflour and half regular flour (or gluten free if thats your thing) this will make your chicken nice and crispy!
- Add the juice of the orange as well as the rind if you want it to be a bit more orange flavoured
- It doesn't matter if you don't cook your chicken completely through because your going to return the chicken to the pan when you add the sauce (this goes for a lot of Chinese recipes) If you cook it too much at the start you risk it becoming chewy later.

I think for a first attempt this was a complete success! I served it on steamed cauliflower because of my Paleo diet but obviously rice would be ideal. If you like Chinese you should definitely try this, my husband said it was just as good as our takeaways down the road- maybe even better!
