Try this General Tso's Chicken recipe, or contribute your own.
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.
james_hicks 1w agoLiterally 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.
Jldozer 5m agoVery 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.
Jessielynne 5m agoVery good. I think I would've slowly added the cornstarch and water at the end to thicken. My dish went pretty thick quickly.
Weathers24 10m agoThe 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!

pdiddy109 1y agofull flavor. get your oil real hot for crispy chicken.
poopins 1y agoTurned 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.
Cbrejak 1y agoEasy 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.
mlm1079 2y agoVery good, I didn't use peppers because of the kids which may have been why I can taste the vinegar. Added just a little red pepper flakes to help offset. I will def make again but use a little less vinegar. Overall, very good.
