General Tso’s chicken is one of my most favorite Chinese food takeout option. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of restaurants, including my favorite Chinese restaurant isn’t opened, so I decided why not make General Tso’s chicken (a sweet, tad bit spicy bursting with ginger and garlic flavor).
Today I will be giving a step-by-step direction on how to make this chicken with a little twist (coconut flour). Yes!!! coconut flour, amidst, the pandemic most stores close to me ran out of all-purpose flour, so I thought “why not just use coconut flour” and voila… it worked.
What you need
5 pieces of chicken thighs(boneless and skinless)
General Tso’s sauce
Without further ado, let’s get cooking.
Cut chicken into bite sizes
Transfer into a bowl, add egg, 1/4 corn starch, 1/3 coconut flour, salt and pepper to taste, and little bit of soy sauce
Give it a good mix, let it sit for about 10 mins
Fry until golden brown and set aside.
Chop up 4 cloves of garlic and garlic, set aside
In a small bowl, combine 3 tbsp soy sauce, 3 tbs sugar, 1-2 tbs rice vinegar, 1/3 cup or less of cornstarch, about 2-3 tbsp General Tso’s sauce, 1/4 cup of water.
Give it a good whisk and set aside.
In a wok pan (you can use regular fry pan too)
Toast some chilli flakes
Add a little oil
Toss in garlic and ginger
Fry for 1-2 mins
Add the combined mixture
Let it cook a bit (do not let it thickennnnnnnnnnnn, even if it’ll be thickened, just a little bit would do)
Toss in chicken
Serve with rice or eat by itself.
