Orange Chicken

Cut chicken into 2 inch cubes (sorry I didn't get a chance to do this)
Dip in Flour mixture (1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp pepper)

Melt 2 Tbsp of butter and place in bottom of baking dish.
Spread Chicken cubes in a single layer and bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

After 30 minutes, turn each piece over and pour Orange sauce all over chicken. Bake an additional 30-40 minutes.

Serve over rice and veggies.

The sauce is already prepared for you, but here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp orange zest
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely minced ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp green onion
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water

In a medium saucepan combine water, orange juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and orange zest and whisk over medium heat for a few minutes. Stir in brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and green onion and let it come to a boil. Combine cornstarch with water till dissolved and add to the sauce to thicken.
