My husband came across a great-looking General Tso’s Chicken recipe by Joanne Lutynec from Slash Food. He sent me an email that had the link and a subject line of “want”. It was pretty clear.
I used leg and thigh meat instead of chicken breast b/c it’s much softer, but it took me a really long time to de-bone the chicken since I Have no way of getting it boneless and skinless here. Otherwise, it went fairly quickly.
I really liked the use of egg in the batter b/c the batter puffed up like little clouds! The sauce for the chicken was also very good, it had just the perfect amount of flavor, tang, and spiciness! Next time I will double the recipe so I have more for my chicken and some left over for putting on the broccoli that I made with it.Â I can image the sauce, which is vegan, would make an excellent sauce for fried tofu, green beans, or a stir fry.Â Naturally, since I can’t eat sugar, I replaced it 1:1 with granular fructose.
I also topped off the meal with Jaden’s Tropical Rice from her Steamy Kitchen blog – will post about that tomorrow!.
