2 eggs beaten

1 c panko breadcrumbs
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper

1 1/2 c. water
1/4 c. orange juice
1/3 c. rice vinegar
2 1/2 T. soy sauce
1 c. brown sugar
1 T orange zest
1/2 t. ginger root, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t. crushed red pepper
3 T. corn starch
1/4 c. water

combine corn starch, salt, and pepper. Prepare a bowl with beaten eggs, panko breadcrumbs, and another with the seasoned corn starch. Dip chicken in the egg mixture, dredge in the corn starch, then again in the eggs, and finally in the panko breadcrumbs. Heat a frying pan with a little bit of olive oil and cook chicken.

In a saucepan, combine the 1 1/2 c. water, orange juice, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. blend well over medium heat for a few minutes. Stir in brown sugar, orange zest, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. Combine the corn starch and 1/4 c. of water and mix thoroughly. Slowly stir the corn starch into the sauce and bring it to a boil. Once it has thickened pour the sauce over the chicken. We made rice to go with our orange chicken.
