3lbs of boneless chicken (see notes below)
A mix of cornstarch/pepper/salt to dust the chicken
1lb of broccoli (partially steamed)
1 can of water chestnuts drained
Red chili flakes (or whole dried red chilies) to taste
3Tbs of ginger/garlic paste or equal portions of each ginger and garlic grated
Optional Garnish: toasted sesame seeds
1. You can adjust your ingredients according to how much chicken you use. Divide all the ingredients by 3 to make only one pound of chicken.
2. I used thigh meat, but you can lower the calories more by using breast meat
General Tso's Sauce for 3lbs of chicken:
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of hoisin sauce
2-3Tbs of honey
1Tbs rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup of chicken broth (or water/bullion equivalent)
1/4 cup of Shao Hsing Chinese Rice Wine or substitute dry sherry
Note: Divide all the sauce ingredients by 3 to make only one pound of chicken.
**make your sauce and cut your chicken while you steam your broccoli.
Cut your boneless, skinless chicken into bite size pieces. Then lightly dust in a mixture of cornstarch, salt and pepper.
