Orange-Glazed “Chicken” Tofu | Dinner

If you’re missing Chinese restaurant–style orange-glazed chicken, try

this easy tofu version. Double the sauce and add some veggies for a

full meal over rice.


2/3 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 (16-ounce) block firm or extra-firm tofu, well pressed

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

2 tablespoons water


1. Whisk together the orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar, maple syrup, and

red pepper flakes, and set aside.

2. In a large skillet, heat the oil and add tofu and garlic. Lightly fry just a

few minutes over medium heat.

3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add in the orange-juice mixture. Bring to

a very low simmer and allow to cook for 7–8 minutes over low heat.

4. Whisk together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl until

cornstarch is dissolved. Add to tofu mixture, stirring well to combine.

5. Bring to a simmer and heat for 3–4 minutes until sauce thickens. Serve

over rice or another whole grain if desired.
