Orange Chicken And Teppanyaki Ginger Salad

We love having this Orange Chicken And Teppanyaki Ginger Salad for dinner. So, this is the pretend Orange Chicken.  As you will see below, there is not a single citrus or orange colored ingredient in this dish. However, it is delicious and I can totally see why the fam’ loves it. Key note- careful to keep the chicken moist. No over baking or frying! Should you choose to bake and not fry the chicken I suggest doing a Panko coating. I also think you should toast up some sesame seeds to sprinkle over this dish just to add a little somethin’.

Then we have the Ginger Salad. Now, I know this looks plain and truthfully it kinda is, but my husband loves to go to Teppanyaki restaurants and they always serve this Ginger Salad. The dressing is so yummy. Could you add some cucumber etc? Why yes, but we didn’t to keep it just like Teppanyaki does it. My husband made up the recipe and I think it’s wonderful! Way to go hubs!

  • Was looking for the orange in the Orange Chicken recipe. Others tried have orange marmalade jelly, why do you call it orange chicken when orange is not an ingredient?

  • Both of these look great. I love the ginger dressings that they serve at certain restaurants- even better that you can recreate it at home!

  • This is a really yummy recipe-even though there's no orange in it. The surprising part is that it has a great flavor all on it's own. It doesn't taste like it's missing anything-just the name gives that away!
