Before I quit eating meat, whenever I would go to a Chinese restaurant, I would always get the orange chicken without hesitation. It was hands down my favorite Chinese dish. So of course when Taryn suggested we make orange tofu for the website, I was thrilled.
She made this orange tofu using a similar method to our popcorn tofu recipe, whereby the tofu is frozen and then defrosted to improve the texture, making it more similar to chicken. If you want this recipe to be very realistic, you could also make it using seitan, which is stringier and has a life-like chicken texture. We hope you enjoy it!
