It’s time folks…for Copycat Friday!!!!
I am so excited because today is the day that I share with you one of my all time favorite restaurant eats!
PF Chang’s Orange Peel Chicken…my copycat version of course.
I must admit that I have a little addiction to P.F. Chang’s, and I am not ashamed at all!
I’ve eaten there hundreds of times…literally, I would say thousands to be exact.
Due to the fact that I am a certified P.F. Chang’s aficionado, I believe that gives me license to recreate some of my favorite dishes!
I would describe Orange Peeled Chicken as lightly fried, orange flavored chicken bites that have a sweet and tangy sauce that’s drinkable!
Look at these chicken bites…I have no words people…
You saute the chicken breast in batches then remove from heat and set aside while we create the sauce.
All I did was mix up the orange peel sauce, I used hot tomato sauce, I put regular tomato sauce in the recipe, because it was hot!
Like Thai hot, and this isn’t Thai food.
I love spicy food so that’s why I went extra hot with the tomato sauce.
Add the sauce to the pan and allow it to boil about 1-2 minutes so it thickens, then reduce heat and allow the sauce to cook for about 5 minutes.
Toss in the chicken, cook another 5 minutes and it’s time to eat!
Look what we created folks, a little sprinkling of greens onions and a little fresh orange peel to garnish, and I think we created a little foodie copycat goodness!
Pass the chopsticks and let’s eat!
