Binging with Babish: Sugar Chicken from Rick & Morty

23 feb 2021

Okay so yes, this was pretty much just an excuse to make orange chicken. BUT: little did Rick & Morty writers know that their (frankly scathing) joke at Panda Express’ expense would set in motion a chain of events leading to my discovery of just how sugar can be a carrier of orange flavor. Or did they? I mean they wrote Rick & Morty, I’m clearly out of my depth.

  • MORTY! Wake up Morty, I did it, I reinvented- I reconfigured the-the-the PANDA (burrrrp) EXPRESS sugar, sugar-style chicken! The key was the sauce Morty, th-th-th-those panda f*cks were f*cking with one paw tied behind their back! C’mon Morty we’ve gotta, we’ve gotta deliver the recipe to the, warrior princess Shi’lah of the (burp) Shlorgerian peace, accords! No f*ck that Morty no time for chicken, only sauce Morty! You’re granddad’s little saucy buddy Morty!

  • Their batter isn't chewy enough, honestly you want a nice craggly chewy batter that will soak up a lot of orange glaze. It makes a much better orange chicken. Also a heavier dose of sesame oil and sesame seeds is excellent on this.

  • I think I might skip the rice wine vinegar and go for mirin instead. Then instead of the shaoxing cooking wine, use the vinegar there. Basically reverse the proportions. Less tang, more rich flavor sweetness.
