General Tso's Chicken

Today is Group B's reveal for The Secret Recipe Club. My assignment blog is Debbi Does Dinner. Debbi's approach to cooking is preparing healthy and satisfying meals that are generally under 500 calories.

Her recipe for General Tso's Chicken jumped out at me, so I knew right away that's what I'd be making.
I used some leftover broccoli from dinner one night and added a sliced sweet cherry pepper for some color. The chicken was tender and delicious and the sauce is amazing - one I'd like to try with shrimp.

Thanks, Debbi, for a great recipe! Take a look at the blog hop to see lots of other delicious recipes!

  2. I honestly think I can smell the delicious aroma of this dish emanating from my computer screen! It's one of my favorites and looks a lot healthier than what we get at the local Chinese takeout.

    Best,

  3. My sons both love General Tso's chicken that we get from a local restaurant. I'll have to give this recipe a try and see how it compares for them. It looks great!

  4. Looks like a great dish. However, I've always wondered: who is General Tso, and why is it his chicken?

  5. Looks good and any slimmed down version of General Tso's is a win!

  14. Man I love General Tso's chicken, probably my fav take-out order. But why take out when you can healthy at home!!!

  15. Yum, we love going to our local chinese restaurants, but who needs to with recipes like this! Can't wait to try it Karen. :)

  16. I like that dish, often get it from our local take-out, but my favorite thing about it might be the regional variations in spelling. It's always General Tsau's in our neck of the woods, but I've seen Zau, Tso, Tzau, Cho, Chau, and others :-)

  18. This is one of my favorite Chinese dishes that I have never made at home. And it's even better when it isn't loaded with unnecessary calories. Great SRC recipe choice!

  21. Looks delicious. Much better than General Tso-Tso's chicken, which is what our local mediocre Chinese place makes.

  25. Hi Karen.. Thanks for posting this recipe.. it's just awesome! I made it twice so far.. once with chicken and last night with grilled pork kebobs. First time as directed.. with the pork I omitted the cornstarch and just used it to baste the grilled & skewered pork.. yumma!
