About Orange Chicken Recipe

It's a delicious citrus chicken recipe. It's crispy, juicy and packed with flavour that everyone will love. It's a very easy and quick recipe that goes well with noodles and rice or one can serve it as starter too. I made this orange chicken a little healthier way by shallow frying the pieces with few tsp of oil rather than deep frying.
