Delicious and very simple. I added some ginger, fish / oyster sauce and minced garlic.

It was great uncooked (minus the cornstarch) and I added 1 T minced garlic and 1/2 T ginger for some added kick. For the chili paste I used siracha. The sauce is so great on its own (I could probably drink all of it), so the next time I make it I might not modify it at all.

I used it to coat fried tofu and served it atop steamed broccoli with green onions and sesame seeds.

I served this sauce over roasted chicken pieces, and it was very tasty. It tasted more like a Hoisin sauce than General Tso's to me though. Next time I think I would reduce the soy sauce and increase the chili paste. Very yummy though!
