I made it with chicken breast instead of the thighs as one of my kids prefers white meat. We all agreed not quite take out but still very tasty. For those of us who like a little heat we served with siracha.
Very good! Made one recipe for my family with chicken and one recipe with pre-baked tofu for me (vegetarian). If you use tofu make sure to use a non-stick pan. Something I did a little different was to add pineapple chunks when you add the chicken (or tofu) back to the skillet (loved it).
I made no changes at all and my husband and I loved it. Some people said it wasn't like the take out...really you've cut so many calories and you thought it would taste just like the take out?. We did have it with brown rice even though the picture showed white rice but who cares? that's why we have smarts. We thought it was very good and it is a "do over" at our house. It's also very filling. Good job Eating Well.
Disappointed There are some excellent healthy Asian recipes out there and I have made several. My husband and I were very disappointed in this one. It didn't taste like General Tso's chicken and it was very vinegary. Unfortunately we threw most of the dish away.
Good substitutions! Other than clarification on the rice pictures all show white rice not brown the dish is easy to make and satisfying Pros: very flavorful and satisfying Cons: This along with other recipes in this series speak about using brown rice yet the pictures all show
Tasty Really liked the texture of this and the taste. It was kind of mushy and not as crisp as regular fried General Tso's and might not taste just like the original but it is a really good dish and easy to put together.
Not a dead ringer for take-out but still satisfying This receipe is easy to prepare and creates enough sauce to serve over brown rice. It is great for what it is but the flavor is not exactly what I think of when I think of take-out General Tso's. Pros: easy to prepare reheats well Cons: doesnt taste just like take out General Tso's
