Homestyle General Tso's chicken step by step
- Take your frying pan , full with oil ,and put it on the stove at medium heat. * Keep in mind that you must use judgement concerning the amount of oil you use.*.
- While the oil is heating up , prepare your chicken breast by washing it and cuting it up into pieces on a plate..
- *Use Judgement * Generously season the chicken pieces with white sugar, and use hands to make sure the sugar coat every piece. Then set aside and wash hands..
- In a bowl dump the 1/2 cup of white flour..
- * Use judgement* Get some cold water from either the faucet or any kind of cold water that you have and put it in the flour little by little. The flour must have a pancake batter consistency. If the batter is too watery add more flour until you have reached the desired consistency..
- When oil is hot, fork out some sugar coated pieces of uncooked chicken pieces into the flour batter. Coat chicken pieces with batter really well, then folk the coated pieces into hot oil. Fry until brown on both sides * Try not too fry too many chicken pieces at once. Because the sizes of the pieces vary, some pieces cooks faster than others so watching, checking , and flipping it is very important.* Tip.. If you run out of flour batter, just mix up another flour batter..
- When the pieces are browned , spatula them out into the empty pan. Before moving to the next step make sure all your chicken is cooked and placed into the empty pan.
- Take the one bottle of house of Tsang general Tsos chicken sauce and pour over chicken . Recommended personal tip the sauce is a little too thick n spicy for me so I add alittle water n sugar to cut some of the thickness and spicyness..
- Serve with white rice or on its own and enjoy :-).
Cut chicken into chunks, then mix together with cornstarch. For the sauce: Mix together soy sauce, sugar, hoisin, vinegar, cornstarch. Okay, so in my humble opinion, when ordering General Tso Chicken, Sesame Chicken or Orange Chicken from a Chinese restaurant, the base sauce reicpe is the same, they simply add spice to the General Tso, sesame seeds to the Sesame Chicken, and orange peel (with a little spice) to the Orange Chicken. So, that being said, you can do the same with. It's sweet, savory, sour and every bit as addictive as the restaurant version.
