Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Small Pot
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan
  • 2 Mixing Bowls

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook the Rice

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 1½ cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner. Set aside covered. While rice cooks, roast broccoli.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Broccoli

    Roast the Broccoli

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Place broccoli on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 14-16 minutes. While broccoli roasts, batter chicken.

  • Step 3 - Batter the Chicken

    Batter the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut chicken into ½" pieces. Season with a pinch of salt. Add canola oil to a medium non-stick pan and place over medium heat. Let oil heat, 4-6 minutes. While oil heats, combine tempura mix, ⅓ cup very cold water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir until batter is extremely thin, almost the consistency of water. If too thick, add very cold water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Add chicken pieces to batter and cover evenly.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Chicken

    Cook the Chicken

    Combine spicy orange sauce and Sriracha (to taste) in another mixing bowl. Test oil temperature by adding a drop of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. Working in batches, carefully add chicken pieces to hot oil and cook until golden brown on two sides and pieces reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 1-3 minutes per side. Remove chicken to bowl with sauce and coat evenly.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, drizzling chicken with remaining sauce. Alternatively, plate chicken and broccoli separately. Bon appétit!
