We’re eating spicy Chinese-style blood orange chicken served with steamed rice and garnished with green onions.

Apparently I need a serious vacation to get over my vacation! We’re back from paradise but I’m still not really feeling this whole โ€œworkโ€ thing, if you know what I mean! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Alas, I do believe I made some promises back in in March or April that I would start updating WWE at least three times a week. I still fully plan for that to be the case, although I’m slow getting started with it.

This dish is one I whipped up over the winter when local blood oranges were in season and I was craving Chinese food without leaving the house. Likely you won’t be able to find blood oranges in the markets since it’s the middle of May but you can always substitute any freshly squeezed ripe orange juice and zest in the recipe.

    I generally greatly approve of this website, with many of its tantalizing and delectable treats. However, as an Asian woman living in Hong Kong, I find it rather irksome that the concoction of blood-orange chicken is listed at “Chinese-Style”. I know that in the US there are many strange dishes that have been adapted for American taste buds, but please don’t call these dishes “Chinese” on your website as you have a great international audience and although I will still be a devout follower, others may not be. You may think that I’m being ultra PC, but we take our food very seriously here: it’s an innate part of our heritage and culture.

  3. As usual, this recipe looks phenomenal. Your photography is top-notch and your recipes are amazing. Thanks for the excellent blog!

  4. Freakin’ YUM! Looks pretty good. I’m all over the blood orange idea.

    Vacation when you return from vacation is normal, right? That happens to me all the time :)

    To put things in perspective, the grocery store in Grand Isle doesn’t have Sriracha.

  6. This sounds like an incredible flavor combination! I love anything with blood oranges! {I’m with Lori YUM!)

    Thank you for identifying the recipe as “Chinese Style.” I knew immediately what you were trying to convey in the title. Frankly, “Mystery Orange Chicken” just doesn’t sound as tasty.

  10. That is one good looking picture. Its all about the food at the end of the day and I’m down for some of that chicken.
