  1. Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes. Mix the marinade ingredients and marinate the chicken for 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare sauce by heating 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and green onions. Add tomato sauce and water quickly before garlic browns. Add brown sugar, Sriracha, sweet chili sauce zest of 1 orange, orange juice, vinegar, hoisin sauce, and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 to 6 minutes or until sauce thickens; remove from heat and set aside.
