General Tso’s Chicken

November/December 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (51 votes)

In this healthy version of a General Tso’s Chicken recipe, we cut the fat and sodium in half from the original version by not frying the chicken and by using half as much soy sauce in this Chinese-takeout favorite. Serve with steamed baby bok choy or sautéed spinach and steamed brown rice.

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.

easy to prepare, reheats well
