I was looking for a new General Tso's recipe and I had to try yours as I'm a Hudson's Bay alumni. My only complaint was that there wasn't enough for leftovers! It was devoured immediately. Good recipe Kirsten. Thanks for posting. Go Eagles!
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?
made just as is. was perfectly spiced. thinking i may try shrimp instead next time. no breading.
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!
Oh, this is soooo good. My family really loved it! Thanks for posting!
