Orange Chicken and Rice Bowl

Have you seen any photography from abandoned malls? Super creepy and pretty surreal. Like stores abandoned, ransacked and growing moss. Like the employees left one day and never came back…

For some reason going to the mall was such a treat. My go to stores were The Gap and H2O (like the water sign, lol) and whenever possible I made a beeline for Panda Express…you know…for the orange chicken…

Do yourself a favor and check out some abandoned mall images and make this delicious orange chicken and rice bowl recipe.


5 teaspoons of canola oil

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips

2 cups broccoli florets

2 carrots, thinly sliced

1 medium onion, sliced

1 yellow bell pepper, 1 red bell pepper, sliced

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 tablespoon scallions

14 ounces unsalted chicken broth

2 oranges, squeezed

3 tablespoons of soy sauce

4 tablespoons cornstarch

3 cups cooked white rice


Heat 2 teaspoons of canola oil on medium in a large wok pot; stir-fry chicken for five minutes or until lightly brown, remove. in same skillet, heat remaining oil, stir-fry broccoli, carrots, onions, bell peppers and ginger for 4 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are soft enough.

In a medium bowl, combine chicken broth, orange juice, soy sauce and cornstarch. Stir until smooth. Add to skillet, stirring constantly. Boil 1 to 2 minutes or until thick. Stir in chicken and cook until hot

Spoon over hot rice and serve with a diet coke just like when I was in the seventh grade.
