3-Ingredient Orange Chicken

Here is my favorite 3ingredient orange chicken recipe that uses sweet orange marmalade, soy sauce, and BBQ sauce. Better than Chinese …

If you love take-out then you are going to love this Easy Orange Chicken. Some take-out duplicates can call for lots of ingredients you don’t have. I made my orange with just easy three ingredients! Yep, just three!! You can also find a recipe video at the end of the blog post!

I really enjoy cooking and creating meals for my family, so I don’t order take-out a lot. My husband loves Chinese inspired food so this was a favorite for sure.

You know I’m not going to give you a recipe with a long list of ingredients that you can’t get at your local grocery store.

The orange sauce for this recipe only has 3 super simple ingredients. After you make your easy orange chicken, grab a movie, and have a date night in! I also included a recipe video for you!

How to make Easy Orange Chicken:

Step one: Start by preparing your sauce. Using a small saucepan add BBQ sauce, orange marmalade, and soy sauce.

Whisk together and allow to cook on a simmer. While your sauce simmers get your chicken started.

  • 1 Cup BBQ Sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • 1 Cup Sweet Orange Marmalade (Smucker’s)
  • 2 TBSP Soy Sauce


Crispy Chicken Ingredients:

  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts (We used 3)
  • 1 Cup Flour/1 Cup Cornstarch (You can use both or either/or)
  • 2 Eggs
  • Oil (We used vegetable oil)


Cooking Directions:

  1. In a saucepan, add the BBQ sauce, marmalade, and soy sauce. Turn the heat on low and let it simmer for 20 minutes, stirring a few times.
  2. Meanwhile, cut up your chicken breasts into cubes. In one bowl beat 2 eggs, while the other bowl should mix the dry ingredients.
  3. Dip pieces of chicken in the egg and then cover in flour/cornstarch. Set on an extra plate.
  4. Add a thin layer of oil to a frying pan and turn your stove on medium/high heat. Once it sizzles, add the chicken to the pan. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes each side until it’s brown and cooked on the inside.
  5. Set the oily pieces on a paper towel and let drain.
  6. Add the chicken to the sauce and toss!
  7. Eat it on top of white rice and enjoy. I think veggies would be good with it such as green peppers or broccoli.
  8. My 3 other most popular chicken recipes include Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta, Sweet and Sour Chicken, and White Chicken Enchiladas!
