General T’so Chicken

This recipe is so good and comes together well. It is as good as ordering take out.

1 lb chicken chopped into 1 inch pieces

1/4 c Cornstarch

Oil to fry

For Sauce:

3 Tbs Rice Vinegar

3 Tbs Soy Sauce

2 tsp Hoisin Sauce

1/4 c Water

3 Tbs Sugar

1 Tbs Cornstarch

1 clove Garlic minced

1/2 tsp Red Chili Flakes

Take the chopped chicken and put it into the cornstarch. Make sure you mix well. Allowing the chicken to be coating completely. A plastic bag will make this task easier.


Fry the chicken pieces til they are a nice golden brown color. Make sure not to have your oil to hot causing the outside to cook before the inside. Allow the chicken to drain off the excess grease while making the sauce.


In a large skillet or wok, add the rice vinegar, hoisin sauce and soy sauce over medium high heat. Mix the water and cornstarch in a small bowl then add to the skillet. Stir and then add sugar, garlic and red chili flakes. This sauce like some sauces isn’t going to taste right til the sauce is done cooking. Keep stirring the sauce til it becomes thick.

When the sauce is done, add the fried chicken pieces into the skillet and stir. Make sure you coat the chicken well.
