Kooking with KrisT Orange Chicken

Tonight I made Orange Chicken. Before I post the Recipe, let me start by saying, THANK YOU for everyone who is tuning in and Kooking with me every Monday. 
So without further ado...

Get Saucy (Screwdriver recipe to follow!)

1/2 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 Tablespoon ginger
2 Teaspoons orange zest
2 Teaspoons chili flakes (or dried red chiles)
1 1/2 Cup orange juice
2 Teaspoons sesame seed oil
2 Teaspoons rice wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed in 1 Tablespoon cold water

Heat the pan to medium heat. Add garlic, ginger, peppers and orange zest until it smells YUMMY. Mix all the liquids together and add the sugar and whisk it until it disolves. Add it to the pan. Then add the cornstarch mixture. Turn the burner to low. The sauce will become thick and sticky. 
Breaded Chicken
1/4 Cup Cornstarch
3/4 Cup Flour
Salt and Pepper
2 eggs

Wash the chicken with Kosher Salt. Then do the Double Dip (not to be mistaken for the party faux pas where one dips a chip in dip and proceeds to dip again exposing the entire dip to one's nasty ass bacteria) 

Cube the chicken into 1" pieces. Dip them in flour, then in egg, then in flour again. Do the harlem shake. Shake off the excess flour and add them to 350 degree oil. 
TIP **** Don't overcrowd the chicks in oil. Its not a frat party its more like a quaint gathering***
Let the chicken fry for 4 minutes
remove from oil and let them rest for 1 minute. What? Their tired!
Put them back in for 1 more minute.
They will be golden brown. Super moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
Serve over rice. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and green onion. If you want to be fancy plate it with orange peels and segments and ALWAYS clean around the rim of the plate.
