General Tso’s Chicken Recipe
Trust us, this recipe is way more than the name suggests it to be. General Tso’s Chicken is a popular American-Chinese preparation that boasts of a deliciously sweet and slightly spicy deep-fried chicken in a light glazed sauce. The dish was named after popular Qing Dynasty statesman and military leader, Zuo Zongtang, who – by the way – never had a bite of this dish and neither have his descendants. However, the preparation traces back its origin to a classic Hunan chicken dish (Hunan being the General’s hometown).
Anywho, this dish is just the perfect blend of sweet, spicy, and piquant flavours. So we suggest you bring your chopsticks out and fire up the stove to make yourself some General Tso’s Chicken for your next dinner!
