So right about now, we are all a little sick of cooking. But we still have to eat. Quick Orange Mongolian Chicken will get you in and out of the kitchen in a flash.
Literally under 20 minutes!
I think I have mentioned before that I love Chinese food….Tim, not so much, but he really liked this recipe. So much that I have made it several times.
We have started a sideline business, so we have been super busy with that. Making meals have either been carryout or fend for yourself snacks.
This recipe has allowed us to have a nice dinner in a flash.
I am a huge fan of ground chicken. We have tons of recipes on the site that use it, so what one more?
Browned ground chicken with soy, hoisin, orange juice and zest, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes for spice comes together in a hurry.
Toss in rice noodles….I love rice noodles for several reasons. One, they are gluten-free, which has turned out to be essential for me. And two, they are super easy to prepare. Just boil water put the noodles in, and walk away. They are ready in about 8 minutes without watching over them like you have to with regular noodles.
Mix the noodles with the sauce and sprinkle with green onions.
How easy is that?
