4 Prep sauce

Wipe the pan clean, then add the butter, 1/1,5/2 tsp of the grated orange zest, 100/150/200 ml of orange juice, and the cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil and let bubble lightly for 2-3 minutes. Add the fried chicken and let stew for about 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.

5 Boil broccoli

Separate broccoli to florets. Bring a small pot of lightly salted water to a boil and cook the broccoli for about 5 minutes until crisp-tender. Serve the orange chicken with sweet potato mash and boiled broccoli. Garnish with pomegranate seeds.

Tips for fussy eaters

Fry some of the chicken separately without the sauce.

Pro tip

Add raisins or chopped dried apricots or dates to the orange sauce.
