I came across a recipe recently for General Tso Chicken and it looked simple enough. No fancy ingredients and something I could make any night of the week without too much trouble…my kind of meal!
Beware….photos of raw meat ahead. scroll quickly if you don’t like looking at it.
First I cut up some chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Then you dredge the chicken in flour and put it in a pan with oil and fry it up until it’s cooked through and crispy.
In a saucepan, mix together sauce ingredients.
After the sauce is done, add some green onions to the chicken.
Then add the sauce to the chicken. I decided not to fully thicken my sauce in the saucepan. So when I added it to the chicken, it thickened up in there after just a minute or two of being in the pan with the chicken.
Then I made some Rice-a-Roni Fried Rice. I added an egg to it to make it more like fried rice.
The verdict? Delicious! We all loved it. I will definitely make this again. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Nothing replaces the yummy deep-fried stuff you get when you order take-out, but if you want something a little healthier, give this a try!
