General Pao's Chicken

"This recipe was taken from the book "the most decadent diet ever" by Devin Alexander. It's as healthy as it is good. It's like a combination of General Tso's Chicken and Kung Pao beef but healthier"

    Very nice recipe. My wife and I both loved it. I made exactly as directed. I caould have had it hotter but it was perfect for my wife. Also, next time I think I will use just a bit more hoisin sauce to head the dish a little closer to to General Tsao!

    We all loved this dish, and I liked that it was a healthy alternative to what we normally eat...and nobody complained that it was healthy!!

    This is really good. The directions are spot on, and it is super simple to put together. Next time I would add bean sprouts and other veggies to the mix. It does not have a lot of heat, but adding more crushed red pepper flakes solves that easily. Thanks for sharing this very low fat recipe.


Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me. I am writing a cookbook with the hopes that when I pass I can leave my recipes for them My cookbook collection has now reached over 1200. Thank you for trying and reviewing my recipes.. <img src="">
