How to Make Chinese Imperial Palace's General Tso's Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Sauce: Put everytihng into a quart jar with a lid and shake it up, then
    put in the fridge. Just shake it up again when you are ready to use it.

    Meat: Mix chicken, soy sauce, and pepper. Stir in egg. Add cornstarch,
    and mix until chicken pieces are coated. (It will look awfull at this
    point.)

    Deep fry 7 or 8 chicken pieces at a time in a 350 degree oil until chicken
    pieces are crispy. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all chicken
    chunks are fried.

    Place a small amount of oil (1 tablespoon) in wok, and heat to 400
    degrees. Add onions, peppers, and stir-fry about 30 seconds. Stir sauce
    mixture, then add to wok. Cook until thick. If it gets too thick, add
    water to right consistency. Add chicken to sauce in wok, and cook until
    all is hot and bubbly.

    Serve with fried or steamed rice. This does not reheat well, so eat in
    one sitting.
