This Crispy Orange Chicken & Snow Peas is better than take out! The chicken gets crispy and then tossed in the most delicious sauce with the snap from the snow peas and carrot sticks for the perfect dish! We like to serve it over cauliflower rice keeping it Whole30 but this would be delicious over rice or even noodles!
