I find it a crime punishable with jail time if you eat General Tso's chicken without fried rice.

You need a larger saucepan for stir-fry's... 4:08 and this is why we cook with woks!

instead of alcohol you could use anything tart/sugary.. pineapple juice, grape juice, almond extract,white grape juice... grats on the recovery bro.

I love general tso's but that's biggest complaint is that its rarely any bit spicy. Maybe it's just what I grew up with but I find it not spicy anywhere nowadays.

reasons not to make this at home:
dark soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine, arbol chiles, roasted sesame oil are all things i can not get at my super market.

I followed this recipe to the exact teaspoon last night (ok, I skipped the salting of the rice and I'm glad I did) and it came out waaaay too salty. The chicken after frying by itself was really crispy and tasty but with the sauce,...holy salt lick! Anyway, I was kinda baffled. The only ingredient I had never used was the Chinese cooking wine. I bought the Shaoxing variety because it was not specified which type to use (and there a few different ones). So I tasted some after the fact,, really salty and kinda harsh. I chose poorly. So, next time I make this there's a variety called Pagoda Shaoxing that I will use with no salt. I will not be denied the delicious homemade General Tso's chicken!

@Sir Parkington Safely or satisfactorily? ;-) I'd say 5-6 people at the most. You should definitely adjust up.

How many people did would you say it could serve safely? I plan on making this soon for 10 people so I need to know how much to adjust the recipe

Thank you! I will definitely give this a try. Do you have suggestions for replacements for vodka? (cuz kids, lol). I had no idea vodka was involved in this chicken.

I’m not old enough to drink is there a substitute for vodka I could use
THEGHOSTSLAVE - 21 day ago
To be completely honest I'm surprised he didn't substitute some salt for MSG. He's only said about a billion times over the years that MSG tastes good, and it's a staple in cheap Chinese takeout.
