Orange Chicken Wings

Goodbye Year of the Horse and Welcome to the year of the Wooden Sheep!

It was Chinese New Year yesterday and we had this Orange Chicken Wings inspired by the Chinese Orange Chicken. As usual, I read what’s instore for us in the coming year..

“In 2015 life will be a win-win situation for you; after all, this period will be controlled by your patron the Wooden Sheep (Ram, Goat). You’ll be lucky practically in everything and everywhere starting with minor household matters and finishing with your cherished dreams and wishes. If you’ve been begging God to give you love, full wallet and health for your family, then you shouldn’t even have the slightest doubt that you’ll get it all – the Ram will first pour chocolate all over its own life and help other signs afterwards. If you want to get a better picture of how lucky you’ll be, simply think of yourself as a kid who got a whole toy store as a birthday gift. However, the horoscope forewarns you: some efforts will still have to be made in order for you to achieve life success.

Looks like it’s gonna be a lucky year for us born in the Year of the Sheep. I’m already thankful for every blessing that we received last year specially moving into our new home and peanutbutter coming home for good. I was sad when I had an Anembryonic Pregnancy during the middle of the year but I guess it wasn’t just meant to be. I got pregnant again after a month and now I am halfway through my pregnancy. Yay!

Speaking of the five-month old bun in my oven… We listened to her heartbeat today.

She’s really very active. I can feel her doing somersaults inside my tummy and during the most quiet times of the day too!  My doctor said I can have an ultrasound anytime .. I’m very excited and thinking of having it next week together with peanutbutter and Ykaie. Ykaie is very excited to know whether she’s gonna have a brother or a sister. I will definitely keep you posted and we just might have a “Guess My Baby’s Gender Giveaway” here soon.

  2. Peachy,
    Congratulations on your growing wee one! I wish you a safe and healthy pregnancy–it is magical to hear that heartbeat and feel the gymnastics.
    This chicken looks like a wonderful way to use the plentiful citrus that’s available now.
    Thanks!

  3. I tried orange chicken before, but it was too saucy and sour..:( Okay, I will try version naman.:) I tried your curry eh before, my kids loved it! 🙂

  4. Wow, Peachy, 5 months along already? Exciting times! 😀 Those chicken wings look soooooo good. I love reading your recipes! Can’t wait to make this for the boys.

  5. Is the taste similar to Lemon Chicken? Or it seems like it’ll be sweeter.
    This year, in general, is said to be peaceful and light. Goodluck with the pregnancy and I wish you a safe delivery in the nearer future.

  6. I am trying your recipe Mommy Peachy, this is something my bunch would enjoy. I love that there is ginger in it, I think it makes every dish so delicious!

  7. Those wings look unbelievable delicious! We love wings in my household. I’ve made orange chicken boneless and they were so so good. Need to try your recipe out and let you know 🙂

  8. Yum this looks and sounds incredible. I love orange chicken but never had chicken wings and I’ve never made them myself!

  9. Aw how adorable that you heard your babys heartbeat, I cannot wait to experience motherhood for myself in the near future. Now this recipe looks absolutely delicious and I’m not normally a fan of orange chicken. It’s such a rarity to find quality orange chicken unfortunately, but maybe I should just start making my own.

  10. Looks like an easy recipe to follow. We tried something like this before but we used Lemon instead of Oranges. It’s a bit strong for our taste so I will try the orange next time.

  14. omg these wings look delicious! My hubby and I have been on a homemade chicken wing kick latkey…. Might have to add orange to the list of wing flavors to try!

  15. Mmmm, this really made my stomach grumble. My boyfriend knows a recipe for perfect fried rice that I think would pair very well with this! I will definitely pass this on to him. Thanks for sharing!

  16. This one looks really good. favorite ko talaga ang chicken wings but never tried it with orange sauce. It’s time to try this one. Thanks for sharing this!
