Tonight was Chinese night. For some reason, Chinese has always been one of Seth’s favorite meals. And it always has to be General Tso’s chicken. We’ve tried making it by scratch from an online recipe. But it never seems to be the same as authentic Chinese takeout. Probably because its missing the secret ingredients…cat and MSG.
Here’s the super easy way I made the General Tso’s Chicken tonight.
General Tso’s Chicken
-1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut up into 1 in pieces (I used the frozen bagged kind from ALDI)
-1 jar of General Tso’s sauce (I’ve found it at ALDI or at certain Publixs)
-Frozen Broccoli Florets
-Frozen Egg Rolls
1. Prepare rice and egg rolls according to package instructions. Also cook the broccoli in the microwave until almost done and drain excess water.
2. Pour some flour into a medium bowl. Put the eggs in another medium size bowl and beat them. Meanwhile get cooking oil heated up in fryer (or frying pan, although the fryer works best).
3. Put a little less than a handful of chicken into the eggs and generously coat them. Then move them to the flour bowl (try not to bring a lot of extra egg with them), and stir them around to coat. When oil is hot, carefully drop the coated chicken pieces in. Once finished, put them on a paper plate covered in papertowels to absorb the excess oil. Continue this process until all the chicken pieces are cooked.
4. Combine chicken, broccoli, and sauce in frying pan. Cook until it is all mixed together well and warm.
5. Serve with rice.
(If you don’t have time to cook the chicken, you can always use chicken nuggets or popcorn chicken, and cook beforehand in the oven. Then add the sauce.)
