Orange Chicken/Fish/Prawns


Today, I am going to share with you how to use orange juice to cook chicken, fish or prawns:

Orange Chicken


  • 2 Oranges - extract juice and set aside (should have about more than half a cup)
  • Half a chicken (chopped into small chunks) or 300 grammes of chicken fillet (cut into bitable size)
  • 5 to 6 Onions (sliced thinly)
  • Spring onions (optional - to be cut into 6 cm stalks)
  • Cucumber and tomatoes (optional - for decoration around the edge of the plate)

Preparation (serves 4 – 6 persons):

  1. Marinate chicken meat with 1 tablespoon of cornflour, 2 teaspoons of soya sauce and half teaspoon of pepper. Leave for half an hour.
  2. When the wok is heated, add in 2 tablespoons of oil
  3. Turn to medium heat and put in the chicken
  4. Stir fry for about 5 minutes ensuring that the meat is cooked
  5. Dish out the chicken, then put aside
  6. With the remaining oil, put in the onions and stir fry until you get the fragrance
  7. If too much oil, remove some, otherwise just add in the chicken, followed by the orange juice
  8. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  9. Before dishing out, add in spring onions and extra soya sauce to suite taste desired

For fish and prawns, the steps are the same. If golden brown fish/prawns preferred, add in more cornflour and fry them slightly longer before setting them aside.

Goodness of orange

It is rich in vitamin C and has a refreshing taste when cooked in this manner.

My children have enjoyed this dish of mine. Singapore parents, I am sure you family will like it too. Go on, try it . . .
