  • 1 cup Simply Orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup Truvia Cane Sugar Blend
  • 2 Tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons cold water


  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/4 cups Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Power Cakes Mix
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg white


  • Make sauce by combining orange juice, Truvia, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder and red pepper flakes in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk continuously for 3-5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water to form a slurry. Whisk slurry into sauce and cook, stirring continuously, for 3-5 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat (until around 350 degrees F). Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper; set aside.
  • Combine Kodiak Cakes and cornstarch in a shallow bowl or dish. In a separate dish, whisk together eggs and egg white.
  • Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then Kodiak Cakes mixture. Working in batches, cook several pieces of chicken at a time in hot oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden brown and cooked through. Carefully remove chicken from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towel and repeat until all chicken is cooked.
  • Toss cooked chicken in sauce before serving, heat through if needed, and garnish with green onion.

    So good! You can use bare chicken from Costco too and just use the sauce.

    Really liked this recipe, and it was good leftover in the airfryer too!

    My family loved this recipe. I added probably a 1/2 tbsp of dried orange peel to enhance the flavor and OMG! Next time I make it I’m going to dredge the chicken shake and bake style in a bag and cook it in the oven. They do this in the sweet fire chicken recipe and I prefer it to frying.
