Spicy Orange Chicken Rice Bowl

Becky Jacobs, retired food service director of Esparto Unified in Yolo County gets the credit for the inspiration behind this dish. She said her kids loved the orange chicken from Panda Express. This is our healthy, simplified version, from scratch — must use fresh oranges though. The recipe doesn’t work with concentrate. She scaled it up and served it to her students, they loved it she said. Most notably, she was surprised how easy it was for her staff to make. We’ve tried this recipe in Alameda Unified School District and the staff loved it.
