How to make Applebee's Crispy Orange Chicken Skillet


Anyone ever tried this at Applebee's? It's delish! Mmm!

Things You'll Need

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 c, plus 1 tbsp. cornstarch oil (for frying)
  • Glaze
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp. grated orange rind
  • 1 c fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 c hoisin sauce
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Cut your chicken into 2 inch piece and put them into a large bowl. Add in the egg, salt, pepper and oil. Mix it well and set it to the side. In another large bowl, stir the cornstarch and flour together and mix it well. Add the chicken into the flour mix and coat each piece generously.

  • Pour about a 1/2 inch of oil into a heavy skillet and set it over high heat. When the temperature is 375 degrees, carefully put some chicken pieces in small batches and fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until it's brown and crispy/crunchy. Carefully remove the chicken from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain it on paper towels, brown bags, or however you'd like to drain it. Finish frying the chicken until they're all done. Set it aside and put together your glaze in the next step.

  • Let your oil cool slightly in the skillet and remove all but 2 tbsp. of oil and put it over medium heat. Saute the minced garlic for a minute, being careful not to burn it so you don't end up with a bitter taste. Add the rest of the ingredient in and bring the mixture to a boil. Make sure to stir this for 3 minutes and reduce the heat and simmer it until a saucy thick glaze is created. Pour the glaze over the chicken and serve!
