Combine cornstarch, egg, and chicken and stir. Add chicken and mix to coat well. Combine sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice, vinegar, garlic,and ginger. Heat oil in wok. When very hot, add half of the chicken and fry until crisp and cooked (should only take a few minutes). Remove to drain on paper towels.
Reheat oil and cook remaining chicken.
Remove all but 1 tablespoon oil, and add red peppers. Stir-fry quickly without burning. Add sauce and stir until well-mixed and sugar dissolves. Add cornstarch mixture stirring until thickened. Return chicken to wok with green onions. Stir to coat chicken, remove, and serve with rice.

juliepillarblumFast and easy recipe! My kids and I both love it!1w ago
divak68I will never buy from the Chinese restaurant again!!! This came out perfectly. My only tweaks were I used rice vinegar and I put Five Spice in with the chicken/egg/cornstarch. My kids wanted to eat that alone without the sauce. Next time I will add some sesame seeds.1m ago
james_hicksLiterally the most difficult dish to make that I've seen on this app. First off, whats the corn starch mixture? I don't know, maybe because someone forgot to add what comes after "3" in the ingredients section. Two, what in the world is "1 T"? Tbsp? Tsp? Ton? Most aggravating thing is when people fail to post a full recipe on a RECIPE app.7m ago
JldozerVery good. Sauce is very good. Like another reader this, in my opinion, is more like a sweet and sour sauce (with a twist) due to the use of pineapple juice. Used rice vinegar and half flour and half cornstarch to dredge the chicken in. I will make this again but still searching for a General Tso's recipe I think I'm looking for something with a bit of orange in it.12m ago
JessielynneVery good. I think I would've slowly added the cornstarch and water at the end to thicken. My dish went pretty thick quickly.1y ago
Weathers24The recipe was missing a few instructions. I just tried to fill in the gaps the best I could. I also used rice vinegar instead of regular vinegar. A triumph!1y ago
pdiddy109full flavor. get your oil real hot for crispy chicken.1y ago
poopinsTurned out really really well. We used rice vinegar so it wasn't over powering. We used red pepper flake instead of the dried peppers, and added some sesame seeds. Very good will make again.1y ago
CbrejakEasy to make and the kids loved it. They fought over the last piece. I served it on noodles and it was great. It will be one of our go to meals.1y ago
