General Tso’s Chicken

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).IMG_8638

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)

Egg

Corn starch

Coconut flour

Soy sauce

Rice vinegar

General Tso’s sauce

Ginger

Garlic

Chilli flakes

Oil

Sugar

Salt

Black pepper

Water

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.
