The Hunger Games Orange Chicken Recipe

ADVERTISING

In one scene of The Hunger Games, Katniss wonders what it’s like to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button when Cinna shows her an entire table top of food:

“Cinna invites me to sit on one of the couches and takes his place across from me. He presses a button on the side of the table. The top splits and from below rises a second tabletop that holds our lunch. Chicken and chunks of oranges cooked in a creamy sauce laid on a bed of pearly white grain, tiny green peas and onions, rolls shaped like flowers, and for dessert, a pudding the color of honey.

I try to imagine assembling this meal myself back home. … Days of hunting and gathering for this one meal and even then it would be a poor substitution for the Capitol version. What it must be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button?”

While there’s a bounty of food described in the passage, we thought we’d focused on that chicken with oranges today. We’re sharing a recipe inspired by it; serve this chicken dish atop rice with a side of green vegetables.
