Cooking instructions

  • Mix orange juice, sugar, vinegar, tamari, ginger and chillies and bring to boil in a small pot.
  • In a small bowl combine starch and water, dissolve any clumps. Add to the glaze mixture. Mix well and let it thicken, stirring constantly to prevent it from burning.
  • Add the orange zest, stir and set the glaze aside.
  • Make rice. If you’re planning to have leftovers, consider making fresh rice the next day.
  • Cut broccoli florets into small pieces and steam briefly, about 2 minutes. Set aside and let cool down.
  • Mix chicken with egg and flour. Fry in garlic oil until golden.

Add sesame, scallions, steamed broccoli and glaze and combine well.
