Does anyone know how to make Orange Peel Chicken? I love the dried orange peel in it. My husband leaves it out, but I eat it. I'd like to know how to get the peels like that from my own oranges.

Put 'Orange Peel Chicken' in your search engine and you will come up with recipes.
This recipe will also tell you how to prepare the orange peels :-) Hope you try it with the sesame flavored salad, too ;-)
Orange Peel Chicken
1 lg. orange
2 lg. whole chicken breasts, skinned and boned
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. dry sherry
4 green onions, cut in 2 inch pieces
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
2 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. orange juice
1/4 c. vegetable oil for wok (a large skillet will work if no wok available)
Rice of your choice
Red wine vinegar
Butter and/or Romaine lettuce
Sesame seeds (toasted or plain)
With vegetable peeler, cut peel from orange into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Do not cut into the white membrane. Place orange peels on a cookie sheet, let peels dry in 200 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Cut chicken into bite size pieces.
In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, sherry, green onions, red pepper and ginger. Add chicken and stir thoroughly.
In a separate bowl mix the cornstarch, sugar, salt and orange juice.
In a wok or large skillet over medium heat, stir fry orange peels quickly in oil quickly until edges slightly brown. Remove orange peels with a slotted spoon and place on paper towel.
In the remaining wok/skillet oil, stir fry chicken mixture until just tender over high heat. Stir in orange juice mixture and continue to stir until mixture has slightly thickened.
Spoon the chicken and sauce over rice and top with the orange peels.
Serve with sesame oil and vinegar as a dressing tossed with plain butter and/or romaine lettuce topped with sesame seeds.
