Very nice recipe. My wife and I both loved it. I made exactly as directed. I caould have had it hotter but it was perfect for my wife. Also, next time I think I will use just a bit more hoisin sauce to head the dish a little closer to to General Tsao!
We all loved this dish, and I liked that it was a healthy alternative to what we normally eat...and nobody complained that it was healthy!!
This is really good. The directions are spot on, and it is super simple to put together. Next time I would add bean sprouts and other veggies to the mix. It does not have a lot of heat, but adding more crushed red pepper flakes solves that easily. Thanks for sharing this very low fat recipe.
