Orange Chicken

This was another meal brought to me after I had my son Davis from my friend Amanda. It too has become one of our favorites!

2 pounds chicken pieces
½ c cornstarch
1 tsp minced garlic
¼ c flour
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 egg
Salt and pepper

1 ½ Tbsp soy sauce
1 ½ Tbsp water
5 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp vinegar
Zest of 1 orange

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Mix cornstarch and flour one bowl and in a second bowl beat egg with a little salt and pepper. Heat about a cup of oil in a saucepan. Dip chicken into cornstarch, then into egg and place in the frying pan. Fry until crispy. Remove chicken from pan and put the ginger and the garlic into the pan and fry for 1 minute. Add sauce to the pan and bring to a boil. Add chicken back in and mix, serve over rice.
