In a skillet, season chicken pieces with salt and pepper and cook until tender. Meanwhile, combine water, orange juice, vinegar, and soy sauce in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add in orange zest, minced garlic, and red pepper; reduce heat to a simmer. Pour in cornstarch mixture and stir continually as sauce thickens.
