This was the first gluten free meal I ever made, and it was fan-tastic! Not what I expected from a general tso, but it was really good and much healthier.

Everyone in the family enjoyed this and requested that we make it again. I had boneless skinless chicken thighs, so I used those instead of the breasts, and it worked well. We halved the sugar, and had to leave out the pepper flakes. Still, very good. This will be added to our regular rotation.
