General Tsao's Chicken

This is a recipe from Spark People. It was pretty good. It definitely SMELLED like General Tsao's but it didn't really TASTE like it. We definitely prefer Bourbon Chicken over this recipe.


1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp red pepper flakes

4 tsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 medium scallions, chopped

4 Tbsp soy sauce, low sodium

3 Tbsp splenda (or sugar)

3 Tbsp corn starch

1 lbs boneless skinless chicken, cut ino bite size cubes

1.5 C chicken broth, low sodium

2 Tbsp vinegar


In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger; set aside.

Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and pepper and cook 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes.

Add reserved sauce and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Serve chicken and sauce over rice. Yields about 1 cup of chicken and sauce and 1/2 cup of rice per serving --- RICE NOT INCLUDED IN CALORIE COUNTS

Number of Servings: 4
