  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, and cornstarch to make the sauce for the orange chicken. Set aside.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Add chicken pieces to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is cooked through and slightly browned, about 5-6 minutes.

  6. Push the garlic to one side of the skillet and add the beaten eggs to the other side. Scramble the eggs until cooked through.
  7. Add the mixed vegetables to the skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they are tender.
  8. Add the cooked rice to the skillet with the vegetables and eggs. Pour soy sauce over the rice and mix well. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the rice is heated through.
  9. Season the fried rice with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  10. Serve the egg-fried rice alongside the orange chicken. Garnish with chopped green onions, sesame seeds, and additional soy sauce if desired.
