      Chinese Imperial Palace General Tso’s Chicken

      Ease of Cooking: Advanced Cooking

      Notes:
      This tops most Chinese restaurants. I actually refuse to order this
      anymore, this is
      highly superior.

      Ingredients:
      Make sauce and refrigerate until needed:
      1/2 C. Cornstarch
      1/4 C. Water
      1 1/2 tsp.

      minced fresh Garlic
      1 1/2 tsp. minced fresh Ginger
      3/4 C. Sugar
      1/2 C.

      Soy Sauce
      1/4 C. White Vinegar
      1/4 C. Sherry (I have used a white wine before as well)
      1 can condensed Chicken Broth

      Preparation:
      Put everything into a quart jar with a lid and shake it up, then put
      in the fridge. Just
      shake it up again when you are ready to use it.

      Meat
      3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken, cut into chunks
      1/4 C. Soy Sauce
      1 egg, beaten
      1 C.

      Cornstarch
      2 C. sliced Green Onions
      8 small dried Hot Peppers, seeds removed (Get these the produce
      section in a
      grocery store)

      Mix chicken, soy sauce, and hot peppers. Stir in egg. Add cornstarch,
      and mix until
      chicken pieces are coated.

      (It will look awful at this point.) Deep
      fry 7 or 8 chicken
      pieces at a time in a 350 degree oil until chicken pieces are crispy.
      Drain on paper
      towels. Repeat until all chicken chunks are fried.

      Place a small amount of oil (1 Tbsp.) in wok, and heat to 400
      degrees. Add onions,
      peppers (reusing them at this point..), and stir fry about 30
      seconds. Stir sauce
      mixture, and then add to wok.

      Cook until thick. If it gets too thick,
      add water to right
      consistency. Add chicken to sauce in wok, and cook until all is hot
      and bubbly.
      Serve with fried or steamed rice.

      This does not reheat well, so eat in one sitting.
