Orange chicken is an Americanized Chinese fast food classic that consists of cubed pieces of chicken breasts that are breaded and deep fried, then coated in a sweet, sticky orange sauce.

While it has its diehard fans (including my husband), orange chicken also can be cloyingly sweet, and the fast food variety certainly isn’t winning any nutritional awards.

This healthy orange chicken? It’s better tasting, better for you, and cheaper than takeout orange chicken!

It’s also quick and easy to put together; you won’t regret ditching the delivery and making this homemade version instead.
