RECIPE: General Tso's Chicken

This recipe is one of my very favorite dinners. The chicken isn't breaded, so it's healthier than typical General Tsos, but the sauce is delicious. It has the perfect amount of sweet and spice. This is super fast and easy to make, too.

Here is a printer-friendly PDF!

General Tso's Chicken

1-1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
2 tsp. peanut oil (I use olive or canola oil--any will do)
3/4 cup chicken broth
1-1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
4 servings cooked rice

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken in oil. Meanwhile, combine the chicken broth, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper. When the chicken is cooked through, pour the sauce mixture over the chicken and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes. Serve over rice. Makes 4 servings.
