On our first trip to the grocery store in months we stumbled upon this little bottle of heaven sauce! This whole moving process has been intense. We basically haven’t cooked for ourselves since October! I can’t even tell you how sick and tired to death I am of fast food. How do my pants even fit at this point?!? Between packing, cleaning, madness, passive aggressive tension, moving, living room camp outs,painting, new carpets and finally moving furniture into rooms I just haven’t even been able to think about cooking! The last few weeks I’ve been looking for inspiration for a new post, and I finally found it!
This yummy dinner is done in under 30 minutes and tastes amazing! The chicken is lightly crisped and the rice has been seasoned. The Panda Express sauce is tangy and bright and just plain delicious.
- 2 Chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 1 1/2 Cup Minute Rice, cooked with 1/2 tsp each Garlic and onion powder and 1 tsp Parsley flakes.
- Panda Express Orange Sauce, we used about 1/3 of the bottle but I am not going to tell you how to live your life.
In a large ziploc bag or Tupperware add the flour and spices and chicken. Seal it and shake for a minute until your Chicken is fully coated.
In a skillet add about 1-2 inches of vegetable oil and heat to 360 degrees. Add the chicken pieces in a single layer (we had to do 3 batches) and fry on each side for about 2 minutes until golden brown. Longer if your pieces are bigger.
Add chicken and sauce in a bowl and toss to coat.
Serve on top of seasoned rice.
