Crispy Orange Chicken ... Yum!

I came across a recipe for orange chicken and it was good! But, as I'm want to do, I began to tweak the recipe just a bit, adding a bite of heat. 

Here is MY updated recipe:    
Orange Chicken Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/3 Cup BBQ Sauce (Famous Dave's Sweet & Zesty)
  • 1/3 Cup House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy Stir-Fry Sauce (@Hy-Vee)
  • 1/3 Cup Hy-Vee Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (@Hy-Vee)
  • 1 Cup Sweet Orange Marmalade 12 to 16 oz.
  • 1 tsp Ground Hot Red Pepper (Or More To Taste)
  • 2 TBSP Soy Sauce
Crispy Chicken Ingredients:
  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts (We used 3)
  • 1 Cup Flour/1 Cup Cornstarch (You can use both or either/or)
  • 2 Eggs
  • Oil (We used vegetable oil)

  • Cooking Directions:

  • In a sauce pan, add the 3 sauces, marmalade, red pepper and soy sauce. Turn the heat on low and let it simmer for 20 minutes, stirring a few times.
  • Meanwhile, cut up your chicken breasts into cubes. In one bowl beat 2 eggs, while the other bowl should mix the dry ingredients.
  • Dip pieces of chicken in the egg and then cover in flour/cornstarch. Set on an extra plate.
  • Add a thin layer of oil to a frying pan and turn your stove on medium/high heat. Once it sizzles, add the chicken to the pan. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes each side until it’s brown and cooked on the inside.
  • Set the oily pieces on a paper towel and let drain.
  • Add the chicken to the sauce and toss!
  • Eat it on top of white rice and enjoy. I think veggies would be good with it such as green peppers or broccoli.
