MMM I got my tiny spicy chicken fix I have been needing for 6 years. I use to live in Logan and I would always order the Tiny Spicy chicken and I have missed it. I would recommend doubling the chili paste, otherwise it will be way too sweet.
Followed recipe exactly last week and it was perfect with some fried rice! My family has already requested it again so we're having it again tonight! :)
This reminds me of General Tso's. I didn't have cornstarch, so I dredged in the egg and then flour and garlic salt. I then put on baking pan and baked for about 15 minutes instead of frying. I thickened up the sauce with a tad of water mixed with flour and after the chicken was done, I put it in the sauce. YUM!
I thought the sauce was great, but next time I think I will try a tempura batter instead of the cornstarch. Thanks for posting!
I really enjoyed the flavor, it was even better than the restaurant's but the constancy of the sauce was runny and not enough, so I 1 an 1/2 timed the sauce and omitted the oil then added the oil/cornstarch that was left in the pan from browning the chicken into the sauce. And finished cooking as directed. I t made it even better. Thank you for this recipe. It has become a big hit my two year old will even asks for seconds. Rachel
This reminded me of general Tso's, but saucier and sweet. I liked the sauciness, but I had to cut the sugar. I thought there must have been a mistake in the ingredient list, but with a little further investigation, I saw that it was indeed 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 6 tablespoons of brown sugar. I was certain that much sugar would have ruined the dish for me, so I used 1/2 cup of sugar and 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. I realize that is really changing the dish, but at lest for it made it significantly better. I didn't need the full 16 ounces of corn starch, so my suggestion would be to start of with 8 ounces and add more if needed. I didn't find it necessary to cook in the oven for 1 hour, I only cooked for 35 minutes and the chicken was nice and moist. I keeping this one and am going to fuse it with my recipe for General Tso's. I served this with Chinese Fried Rice. Thanks for this, we had a wonderful dinner tonight.
this is so good... my sister in law loves tiny spicy chicken and she asked me "could you make that "so i found this recipe and made it and she loved it. I make ours just a little hotter by adding a bit more chili paste but other than that an awsome recipe
Very good taste. I use a different batter, because the corn starch is hard to use and very messy. The sauce is awesome though.
My family loves this recipe and I get requests for it frequently.
This was pretty tasty, but I admit I had some ingredient trouble with it. I had to use a few substitutions, and I doubled the sauce, so maybe that changed the taste. I thought it was very sweet, and not spicy enough, so I added some cayenne pepper to heat it up. Next time I would not double the sauce, as the recipe makes plenty. And I would cut back on the sugar... But still tasty.
