General Tso’s Chicken is a perfect combination of sweet and spicy flavors. It is a very popular Chinese dish throughout the United States. This is probably one of the best and easiest recipes around; you will be surprised at how little time it takes to prepare. I decided to get brave and use boneless skinless chicken thighs, and I wasn’t disappointed. However, if you want to use chicken breasts that would work fine as well.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cornstarch and beaten eggs. Mix well to create a batter. Add chicken bits and coat thoroughly.
To make the sauce, in a small bowl combine the sauce ingredients. Mix well and set aside.
Heat a deep fryer or wok to 375 degrees and deep fry chicken bits in batches. Drain on paper towels.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of oil to your wok. Add dried chili peppers to your wok and stir fry for 30 seconds. Add chicken bits to the wok and stir fry for a couple minutes.
Add sauce mixture to the wok and cook, stirring until the sauce becomes thickened and bubbly. Garnish with green onions and serve.
Makes about 2 servings.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
