Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in large bowl. Add butter and incorporate into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or two knives until pea-like lumps form. In another bowl, mix egg, orange zest and vanilla with orange juice, then add to flour mixture. Mix until dough forms a ball. Add chocolate chips and combine.
