Evergreen's General Tso's Chicken

Evergreen's General Tso's Chicken created by RDeezle

I know there are a ton of Tso's Chicken (pronounced by the cook as "sho"). This one is exactly like the Tso's at Evergreen, the restaurant I frequent. This makes lots of sticky sauce, just great for going over rice. They are closed on Mondays, so if I'm craving Chinese, I have to make it at home, which is always better.

ingredients

directions

  • In a zip-top bag, combine marinade and chicken. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes. While marinating, assemble rest of ingredients (except chilies) and combine in a bowl. This step is very important because after you fry the chicken, this recipe moves VERY fast!
  • After marinating, fry chicken and drain. Keep warm.
  • Drain the oil if any is left. Toast the chilies in a drop of oil, being careful not to burn them.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until the cornstarch is combined; add to the skillet and bring to a boil and reduce heat. Mixture should thicken up a bit.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet and heat through.

    To help those who had questions about the recipe, the marinade is the soy sauce, pepper, egg and cornstarch.... This recipe is delicious....

    Great Chicken! I have tried some of RE's recipes before and I was looking forward to trying this one. I added carrots, but it made the dish a bit sweet, added hoisin and some more spices along the way. Turned out great. Will make again.

    This is perfect General Tso's ! Tastes better than the restaurant's! I use both reduced sodium soy sauce (make sure it is good quality) and chicken stock. I also use rice vinegar instead of white vinegar. Pan fried in a stick of shortening is the best way to fry the chicken! If you use dried chiles be sure to rehydrate them and slice them before putting them in the sauce.
