Orange Chicken

Craving take out but want it to be GOOD?! I feel like we pay so much money when we order to go food and honestly it’s never as good as I was dreaming about! πŸ˜” Some things just taste better right out of the skillet and this is one of those in my opinion!!

Want to hear the good news?! You can make this at home in just under 30 minutes!! It’s as simple as browning the chicken and quickly stir frying it in the sticky, sweet, tangy sauce!! This one was delish!!!

Serve with a simple side of steamed white or brown rice and enjoy! also, I suggest making more than you think because this went fast! πŸ™ƒ Here’s what I did!
