    Chef Spice's Note:

    There are recipes out there that take much more time for General Tso Chicken, and I use to love making them. But, these days I don't have time to fuss like I did a few years ago. I have way too much going on in my life. So I am trying to find ways to make my favorite recipes much more quick and easy. Instead of using individual ingredients in my GTC, I have turned to Hoisin and Duck sauce to substitute for much of the ingredients I use to use in my recipe. What is Hoisin sauce? Hoisin sauce is commonly used for barbequing or in the common dish "Peking Duck." Hoisin sauce is soy-based and regularly used in Chinese dishes, as well as stir-fry recipes. The ingredients in a typical bottle of hoisin sauce are soybean paste, garlic, vinegar, and various spices such as chili peppers. The flavor this mixture yields is described as sweet, salty, and spicy. What is Duck Sauce? The basic ingredients duck sauce can be found in just about any supermarket. Ingredients include some dried plums, dried apricots, vinegar, sugar and a few spices. Because of the dried fruit, duck sauce is sometimes referred to as plum sauce or apricot sauce. In fact, when the sauce is used as an ingredient in some recipe, it will often be listed as a plum or apricot sauce. I feel this recipe is very good for a quick, easy, reduced fat recipe. It's lower in fat because it is not fried in batter and oil like regular TGC. Instead it is roasted.
