You may think it’s an odd pairing but oranges and fried chicken is really quite delicious.
The orange in this Chinese-inspired chicken dish is the main flavor but the other ingredients in the sauce make it much more extra. You simmer down the orange juice until it’s a richly flavored liquid before adding the rest of the seasonings: salt, pepper, and (the secret ingredient that makes anything and everything delicious) sesame oil. Make it thick, and you’ve got a sauce that’s delicious and ready to serve with anything, including a simply fried chicken with crispy skin.
