Orange Chicken Wings

Orange Chicken Wings

I am all in for anything sweet, spicy and tangy..and this orange chicken wings sums up the whole concept! This American-Chinese dish is super easy to prepare, and makes the perfect side dish to go with fried rice, stir fried noodles etc.

Chicken wings are marinated and deep fried and tossed into a sweet, spicy and tangy orange sauce. The OJ might be very tangy at times, if this is the case, adding a dash of honey helps to level it out and bring out the flavors .To retain the crispness, make sure to toss the crispy fried chicken with the orange sauce just prior to serving!
