    Does anyone have a recipe for orange chicken made with soy chicken? (Like Sipz, if you know it.) What brand do you recommend for soy chicken and where do you buy it?

    I had my bottom wisdom teeth pulled yesterday morning (non surgically) and my mom is bringing me orange chicken. Is it ok to eat that or will it cause a dry socket? If not, when can I start eating normal food? thanks.

    Orange Chicken was not born in the US so let’s say running for congress. Orange chicken is definitely more stable then generation outsource.
