One-Skillet Orange Chicken

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

The right amount of sweet-and-spicy flavor and only one pan to clean.

It’s no secret that fried chicken is a beloved staple in the Teigen-Legend household. Everyone—especially the kids—love when John makes it, but this orange chicken with a sweet-and-tangy maple-orange glaze may be our family’s new favorite. To optimize the zestiness, use both orange juice and zest in the marinade—the zest is filled with aromatic oils that will punch up the citrus flavor in the chicken, balancing out the saltiness and spiciness of the sauce. Try making this chicken with bacon & broccoli garlic fried rice and you may never need to order takeout ever again.

Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet
Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet

Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. It can cook almost anything and will last a lifetime. Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required
