So the orange chicken wasn’t EXACTLY a disaster.

But it went weird.  I dredged the chicken in flour, dipped it in egg, then dipped it in panko (as per the recipe).  And once I had the chicken in the oil, the covering promptly fell off the chicken and – well, actually, it browned up amazingly well and I was able to salvage the situation by constant stirring to keep the breading from burning while the chicken itself fried up.  The whole thing ended up being tossed in the orange/sugar/chicken broth goop that I was making to coat the chicken, and it all tasted great when I put it over rice, but: the breading was still supposed to stay on the chicken.

What did I do wrong?  Did I not grind the chicken into the panko? I probably should have ground the chicken into the panko.
