1/2 Photos of Chinese Take-Out General Tso's Chicken
General Tso's Chicken is one of those Chinese dishes that would be hard to find in China. Seems that this dish of battered, deep-fried chicken pieces bathed in a sweet garlicky spicy sauce was born back in the seventies in a Chinese restaurant in New York. But even though it would be difficult to locate a recipe for it in a traditional Chinese cookbook, it stands as one of the most-ordered favorites on the Chinese-American menu. Just who is this General Tso guy? Turns out he was a successful Chinese statesman back in the mid-1800's. We're not sure why this dish was named after him, since we can be pretty sure he never tasted it. From the Take-Out Menu Cookbook.
