Save Recipe

This easy orange chicken recipe only has five ingredients and takes 20 minutes to make. The secret is using shortcuts to make it. When it’s done, you have a bowl of orange chicken that’s delicious served over rice with a veggie.


  • 1 pound frozen popcorn chicken
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (I like Stubb’s Original)
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar


  1. Bake the popcorn chicken according to the package directions.
  2. While the chicken bakes, make the sauce. Combine the BBQ sauce, marmalade, soy sauce, and rice vinegar in a saucepan. Heat it over medium heat and once it starts to bubble keep it on low until the chicken is done.
  3. Once the chicken is done baking, place it in a heat-proof bowl. Pour the sauce over the top and toss to coat the chicken. Serve with rice and veggies!
