General Tso’s Chicken

Posted: Monday, May 29, 2017

General Tso’s Chicken is a Chinese – American recipe invented several years ago. Actually, it was invented in America and has no Mainland China history. It is, nevertheless, incredibly delicious. There are several variations of it, but this is our version.

There are a few tips and alterations to the recipe. First, we use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, as they are so healthy and easy to work with. Any cut of chicken can be used, however. You will just have to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

We use a heavy, dark soy sauce in the recipe because of the malt flavor of it. If you don’t have it on hand, you can use regular soy sauce.

Next, the recipe uses Hoisen sauce which can be picked up in any grocery store anywhere in the world. If you don’t have it you can simply leave it out.

Rice wine vinegar can be substituted for cooking wine.

The amounts of the rest of the ingredients, such as the garlic and ginger, can be adjusted according to your liking. It never hurts to add a little more of each.
