General Tso's Chicken

Recipe bythatdebi

3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
2 cups green onions, sliced
4 tablespoons chili paste, more or less according to taste
Cornstarch Slurry:
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (be sure your soy sauce is gluten-free)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce (be sure your soy sauce is gluten-free)
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 cups chicken broth

  1. Place sauce ingredients in a quart jar with a lid and shake to mix. If you make this ahead of time, just refrigerate until needed, shaking again when you are ready to use.
  2. Mix cornstarch slurry in a large bowl. Mixture will be strange but it works! It will be very thick and paste-like. Add chicken pieces to coat. Add chicken to 350 degree oil and fry until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in oven until all chicken is fried.
  3. If desired, skip slurry. Marinate chicken in soy sauce, then grill.
  4. In a large skillet or wok, add a small amount of oil and heat to 400. Add green onions and chili paste and stir fry 30 seconds.
  5. Stir sauce mixture, add to pan with onions and chili paste. Cook until thick. Add chicken to sauce and cook until hot and bubbly.
