Mandarin Chicken

Does anyone know if they make a mandarin chicken sauce or do you have a recipe to make it? I had it at some place in the mall and am now craving it bad. I want to make it tonight for supper.

I just found this on

Mandarin Chicken:

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup hoisin sauce

1/3 cup orange juice

1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained

1 tablespoon chopped green onions

1/4 cup chopped cashews


Place flour in a small bowl. Dredge chicken in the flour to lightly coat.

Heat olive oil and butter in a medium skillet over medium heat, and saute the chicken breasts until no longer pink and juices run clear. Set aside, and keep warm.

Stir hoisin sauce and orange juice into the skillet, and scrape up the browned bits. Mix in mandarin oranges, green onions, and cashews, Return chicken to the skillet. Continue cooking until all ingredients are heated through.

I found this recipe at :


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

vegetable oil or cooking spray

½ tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon of garlic powder

Mandarin Sauce-

2/3 cup sugar

¼ cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon fresh garlic (minced)

1 teaspoon fresh ginger (minced)

¼ cup water

4 teaspoons cornstarch

Step 1: Pound chicken breasts with a mallet to an even thickness and season both sides with sugar, salt, and garlic powder. Grill chicken 4-6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink inside. Remove from grill and cut into bit sized strips. Set aside.

Step 2: In a bowl combine sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic and ginger. Pour into a wok or sauce pan. Heat the mixture until almost at a boil. Combine cornstarch and water. Once the sauce starts to boil add the cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened.

Step 3: Add grilled chicken to the wok and coat with the sauce. Simmer until heated thoroughly.
