Directions

Begin by pouring the water, orange juice, lemon juice, rice vinegar, and soy sauce into a pot that’s over medium-high heat. Stir in the orange zest, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, chopped onion, and red pepper flakes; and bring to a boil. Remove it from heat and set aside for 10 minutes. Place the chicken pieces into a bag and pour the sauce into bag. Seal the bag, and refrigerate for an hour. In a different resealable plastic bag, mix the flour, salt, paprika, and pepper. Add the marinated chicken pieces, seal the bag, and shake to coat. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and place marinated chicken. Cook for about 4 minutes per side. Serve with sriracha.
