Super-Easy General Tso Chicken
30 mins (prep 30)
10 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is not authentic General Tso's Chicken, but it's a recipe I developed and it tastes quite similar. It's easy and requires no "odd" ingredients. You can either batter your chicken before adding to the sauce or just stir-fry your plain chicken, it's up to you. This makes plenty of sauce- I don't like dry General Tso's. After reading several reviews, I would just like to add that I must use VERY mild hot sauce, because I am definitely NOT someone who likes super-hot stuff and several have complained that it's too hot. I would have to say that it probably varies according to your brand of hot sauce, so be warned! :-)
