1 (3 1/2) pound
broiler-fryer chicken, cut into pieces
minced fresh ginger root
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
green onions, cut into 2-inch slices
Awesome recipe... just used the chicken thighs. I wished there were a suggested amount of red pepper flakes to add ( I added 1 tbs ) ... too hot for me ... just right for the hubby! All in all... great copy cat recipe for general tsos chicken! Thanks for the recipe!
Flavor was more sweet than spicy, but definitely had an asian taste :) I used boneless skinless chicken breasts instead and added a red pepper cut up into chunks in the last 3 mins of cooking and finished off with sesame seeds for presentation. Good flavor, but lacking something savory in the sauce.
I love this recipe! I also boned the chicken and only used leg & thigh meat as I used to have this recipe from an old Chinese cookbook that I can no longer find, and the white meat seemed to always be too dry. I also used veg oil for frying, added minced garlic along with the ginger, and omitted the red pepper flakes. Thanks for posting!
I didn't care for the sauce- it was sweet ,gooey and overpowered by the chili sauce.
