(Thanks to Judy White for the nomination!)
Our next Wok Wednesday recipe will be Spicy Orange Chicken (p. 119). This should be a fun chance for us to try our hand at a Chinese take-away standard! I myself am partial to sesame chicken, but orange chicken is always my back-up.
For those of you in warmer climes this will be a chance to take advantage of the last of the season’s tomatoes. This recipe also some non-traditional ingredients like white pepper and chili bean sauce, both of which will show up in future recipes; take the opportunity to stock up now! Lastly, I’d recommend purchasing a scallion shredder to help slice the scallions – they are incredibly inexpensive, easy to find online or at most kitchen supply stores, and will make quick work of those scallions.
Any questions or comments before you start? Are you an orange chicken fan?
