General Tso's Chicken

I was in the mood for some Chinese food last night and decided to take a crack at it. It looked like it would be difficult, but it was SUPER EASY!! Well lucky for me, it turned out awesome! Lucky for you I'll share how I made it!

Here's what you'll need: 
  • 1 pkg of chicken (I used thighs)
  • 3 green onions
  • 2tbl cornstarch
  • 1 tbls sugar
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbls sugar
  • 3 tbls water
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbls rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
  • 4 tbls soy sauce
Lets start off by first cutting up all the ingredients such as the ginger, garlic, and onions. Slice the green onions, peel and mince or grate the ginger, and then mince the garlic. Next combine all the ingredients except for the chicken into a bowl and allow to sit. Next cut the chicken into about 1 in. chunks and pan sear them in a wok or a regular pan. Once the chicken it completely cooked through, pour the other ingredients onto the chicken while the pan is still on. keep stirring until the sauce thickens. Once thick, transfer to a plate and ENJOY!

If you want more spice, add more crushed red pepper flakes!
If you want more sauce, just double the recipe but only use a total of 3 tbls of cornstarch.
