Since Orange Chicken is one of Keith and Kyle’s favorite meals from a Chinese restaurant, they wanted to try making it at home. They found this recipe online and made dinner for us one night before we got home from work. It was excellent and is now considered their speciality!

I recommend preparing all your ingredients before starting to cook this recipe. Keith and Kyle use prep bowls that they line-up across the whole kitchen counter!
