This interesting recipe was inspired by an unlikely source: mall food-court style “Chinese” food. It seems weird to think so now, but so many of us grew up loving the sweet taste of that orange sauce. I remember growing up thinking that deep fried chicken balls in orange sauce was a classic of Chinese cuisine.
Now we all know better, and aren’t liable to be found snacking on the fast-food variety of Asian cooking. But there is still something magical about the sweet and savory mix of that orange sauce. With this great guilt-free recipe, you can enjoy that incomparable taste without all the added sugars and other weirdness.
