I thought this was excellent! I am not one to eat fried foods, but my fiance loves Asian food, so I decided to make my first attempt at this type of recipe. I thought I did a fantastic job, and so did my fiance....thanks to your recipe! The only thing that we both felt was "off" was the fact that it wasn't spicy. I used the dried peppers as you stated, did not burn them, but there was no hot factor to the dish. Did I do something wrong? The sauce was absolutely great, but again, we were both expecting something spicier. Any suggestions?

I am pregnant and recently moved to Italy, and have been craving some General TSO chicken like i used to get at home, unfortunately Chinese restaurants here aren't as good as home so i decided to make for myself, the pics looked so good but the chicken was not, i was highly disappointed . :(

Oh yum! I've been waiting for the right time to try this dish and last night seemed perfect. I was wanting chinese food, but something tastier and fresher than the dismal takeout we'd had recently. I used chicken tenders which I cut into large pieces. I wasn't very impressed with the batter (not crispy at all, even after the 2nd stirfry) but it didn't detract from the overall taste. I didn't have any chili pods, so I used a couple squirts of sriacha sauce. I was surprised how quickly and how perfectly the sauce became a glaze! Just like we get at our favorite restaurants. Yum, yum, yum!

this was delicious! We both gobbled it down. I did add spring onions and garlic and I found it did need it. I also got shot in the eye with some oil.. I also think you definitely need some vegetables to go with it. I would also quadruple the sauce next time! It was delightful!

I made this yesterday and my family loved it. My normally picky daughter gobbled it down.
I followed the recipe as written except I used chicken breast meat. We did feel that it could have used a bit more sauce.

Wow, this is a fantastic recipe! General Tso's is my son's favorite meal and I gave up on finding a recipe as good as we can get down the street. I tripled it and still didn't have leftovers. I substituted water for the rice wine and used the dried Chipotle peppers I had on hand. It was far easier than expected and I still can't believe I made something that tasted THAT good. Thank you for posting this!

This recipe is the BEST. Added some mongolian fire oil to the sauce and to the oil while frying. Also fried up some veggies in oil and served with the chicken. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
