We did it. We hacked Panda Express’ famous Orange Chicken. Okay, not really. We took out the chicken, taking our cue from Yardbird Hong Kong’s KFC (Korean Fried Cauliflower); and used some veg—in this case, broccoli—instead. See, that’s us watching out for your health. (Maybe just forget that it’s fried…)
The batter is light and crunchy, complementing the softness maintained by the broccoli. While the sauce keeps the natural sweetness of the oranges, the garlic gives it a nice bite that cuts through the sugar. It’s an easy appetizer to snack on—and it’s actually quite filling. Add some meat (chicken, maybe?) if you want to make it a full meal.
