P.F. Chang's Orange Peel Chicken

Menu Description: "Tossed with orange peel and chili peppers for a spicy/citrus combination."

Several of P.F. Chang's top-selling items are similar in preparation technique: Bite-size pieces of meat are lightly breaded and wok-seared in oil, then doused with a secret sauce mixture. That's the basis for this recipe as well, but I have a special fondness for the citrusy sweet and spicy flavors found in this entree. The heat comes from chili garlic sauce, which you'll find in the aisle with the Asian foods in your supermarket -- the rest of the sauce ingredients are common stuff. The orange peel is julienned into thin strips before adding it to the dish. Since the flavor from the peel is so strong, we won't need to add it until the end. Cook up some white or brown rice to serve alongside this dish and get the chopsticks ready.

We loved this dish, it was really spicy but so satisfying! I might lower the heat level next to satisfy everyone's taste buds, but if you like the heat, it's an awesome recipe!!
Worst recipe clone so far

Most of the other recipes taste fairly close to the original. However, this recipe is not very good. Where's the orange? I made this for family and no one liked it. This is one of the few that need to go back to the drawing board.

I was a big fan of PF Changs and Pei Wei before I moved to a small town and had their orange chicken all the time. While I don't think this is exact it is a pretty good copy. I add a little OJ to the sauce to help the citrus flavor.

I love chinese food and so decided to make this recipe. I have never gone to a PF Chang's as we don't have them in my area of the U.S. I was not a big fan of this recipe at all.
