How to Make General Tso Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Preheat oven to bagged chicken specifications
    2. Prepare rice (2 cups dry) according to package direction...  I like goldstar jasmine rice
    3. When oven is preheated bake 2 bags popcorn chicken according to package directions while baking start sauce
    4. In a small pan on med high heat, combine chicken stock, soy sauce, rice vinegar, hoisin, Sriracha, sesame oil, sugar, ginger,  garlic, japones, and parsley
    5. dissolve corn starch in water (in cup) and pour into mix stir until thickening occurs.  turn heat to low
    6. after all is done add rice, chicken the sauce
    7. Top with green onion
  2. Tips
    Serve over Jasmine White Rice
    japones are optional and when in season I use fresh cayenne peppers  (will make it VERY hot) I would rate this about a 6.5 on hot scale.  IF you have kids you may want to cut the ginger, sriracha, no red pepper flakes or very few, 1/2 garlic
  3. Makes a HUGE batch, recipe suggests cutting in half...
