Orange Pekoe Tea Orange Chicken
1/2 C Orange Juice
1/3 C Honey
In a small sauce pan combine all ingredients bring to a boil then lower heat to medium-low and let reduce liquid to 1/3 or until thickened and glossy about 15 minutes.
1 1/2 C Buttermilk
1 Tsp Orange chicken spice
1 lb Chicken tenders
Pour buttermilk and spice in a bowl. Cut chicken tenders into bite size pieces about 1 inch thick then place them in buttermilk mixture and let marinate for about 10-15 minutes.
1 1/2 C All purpose flour
1 Tbsp Orange Chicken Spice
1 Tbsp Corn starch
Place all dry ingredients into a large storage bag and shake to combine. Then remove chicken from buttermilk marinade and place into the bag with the flour mixture. When you transfer try to keep excess buttermilk from transferring into your flour mixture. Close the bag then proceed to shake and move around all chicken peices until completely coated with flour mixture. Once all chicken is coated empty bag into a mesh strainer with a bowl below it to catch the excess flour.
To Bake(as shown in picture): Preheat oven to 500*. Place chicken pieces on a greased sheet pan. Space the chicken pieces so they do not touch each other. Take 1/4 cup canola oil(peanut or olive oil will work too)and a pastry brush and brush each piece of chicen with the oil. Once you place your sheet pan of chicken into the oven change heat setting from 500* to Broil. Broil for aprox. 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and cooked all the way through.
To Fry: In a large high sided pan (chicken fry pan) pour in canola oil until it reaches about 1/2 inch up from the bottom of the pan. Put over medium to medium-high heat in order for your oil to reach aprox. 400*. Place chicken peice in pan in a few batches as to not overcrowd the pan. Allow excess oil to drain off the chicken once cooked by setting it on a paper towel for 1 minute. Do not let it cool just drain.
Once your chicken is cooked by whichever method you prefer place warm glaze into a large mixing bowl. Trow in the hot chicken pieces and toss untill all chicken pieces are coated with the glaze. Then place on your serving dish and serve. Serves aprox 4-6 people.
