Orange Chicken and Brownies

Easy Panda Express Orange Chicken
My kids love the orange chicken from Panda. I found a great recipe that was really close (only all white meat) Though it was relatively inexpensive to make it was time consuming and messy to make the sauce from scratch. Sooo Guess what, you can now buy Panda Express Orange sauce at your grocery store, making home made orange chicken a fast and easy meal.

2 lbs boneless chicken pieces
1 egg
1/2 t salt
white pepper
oil (for frying)
1/2 c plus 1
T cornstarch
1/4 c flour

Cut chicken pieces in 2" squares and place in large bowl. Stir in egg, salt, pepper, and 1 T oil and mix well. Stir cornstarch and flour together. Add chicken pieces, stirring to coat.Heat oil for deep-frying in wok or deep-fryer to 375. Add chicken pieces, a small batch at time, and fry 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and crisp. (Do not overcook or chicken will be tough.) Remove chicken from oil withslotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

Clean your fry pan, heat pan add chicken, then add bottled sauce and heat through until well coated. Wa Lah Serves 4 unless my house then only 2


I was watching a show where they were discussing what is better, chewy or cakey brownies. I like cake brownies and I have a recipe that will give you the biggest nicest ones ever.

2 Boxed Brownie Mixes (for 13X9 pan)
2 tsp vanillia
1 cup semi sweet chip

Follow the directions on the box
(dont forget to double everything), adding 2 extra eggs if it only calls for 2 eggs per box you want 6 eggs total.
Add vanilla and chips. Dont beat the batter to much.
Put in 13X9 pan and bake at 350 for 45 to 50 min.
Cool slightly and then cut, then cool some more. Yum Yum
