I am a huge fan of Asian food, especially Thai and Chinese food, so when I came across a recipe for Cambodian Orange Chicken on Pinterest I knew I had to try it. The recipe was super easy and the end result was delicious. The chicken was well seasoned, juicy and the orange sauce was an amazing combination of sweet and sour. So far my favorite chicken dish!

Finally, after much anticipation, one of the best things to come out of Cambodia in the last decade is Orange Chicken. And it’s even better than the Chinese takeout version, because it’s not fried in oil—it’s baked in a sweet sauce that marries the sweet and tangy flavors of orange and garlic.

In this post I’ll show you how easy it is to make this Cambodian orange chicken dish. This recipe is based on a popular and easy recipe by an Indian chef named “Curry Up Now”.. Read more about cambodian chicken recipes and let us know what you think.
