Chinese-style orange chicken.  Easy, simple and delicious cooking recipe

We already know that what in Spain is known as “Chinese style” does not have much to do with authentic Chinese cuisine, which on the other hand is the most varied and difficult to condense into a few lines. That does not mean that we love dishes that have already become popular classics, such as sweet and sour pork or Orange chicken, recipe that we recreate here.

If we prefer, we can use boneless, fattier and tastier thigh meat.

First pass the chicken breasts through kitchen paper. Remove any excess fat and cut into bite-size pieces of about the same size. Lightly salt and pepper. Chop the chives and garlic clove.
