It depends on the recipe, but I think raw chicken would be best. When I've made orange chicken I coat the chicken in a corn starch mix that sticks well to raw chicken and gives a nice crispiness when fried and absorbs the orange sauce really well - I don't think it would stick very well to cooked chicken.
