In a medium bowl, whisk Bourbon Chicken Mix, orange juice, soy sauce, and Crushed Aleppo Chiles (if using). Set aside. In a large bowl, combine chicken and corn starch and stir until pieces are evenly coated. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 7 to 8 min. without stirring, or until golden brown. Stir and cook an additional 5 to 7 min., or until chicken is cooked through. Add sauce mixture and bring to a boil.
