Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and season with salt and pepper. Put the chicken in a mixing bowl and add 1 cup of cornstarch, Mix it well, so all pieces will be covered with cornstarch.
  2. Preheat 1/3 cup of vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  3. In a smaller bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Dip the bite-size chicken pieces covered with cornstarch into the beaten eggs, coating them from all sides, then transfer them into the preheated pan.
  4. Cook the chicken for about 30 seconds on both sides just until it has a beautiful brown/golden color, then transfer to the 9×9 baking dish. Continue to cook the rest of the chicken the same way.
  5. In a mixing bowl add orange juice and zest, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, maple syrup and red pepper flakes. Stir it well and add pour it over the chicken. Toss it to coat and bake in the preheated oven at 325°F for an hour. Toss it 2 or 3 times while baking to coat with the sauce.
