    I fried some chicken similar to this method (General Tso's)the flavor was great. I could have eaten the chicken and did eat some without the sauce and plan to do so in the future. After marinating the chicken in the soy sauce and white pepper I added a beaten egg to the zip lock, then a cup of cornstarch and mixed it until all the chicken was coated. This was a sticky mess (disapointment), but I continued with the recipe and added the cup of oil required. The oil separated the chicken nicely, but the chicken looked gross. I then went on to deep fry it. To my surprise, it fried up beautifully and tasted great (I used skinless and boneless chicken thighs instead of breast...more flavorful). The sauce for the recipe also tasted great, but was too thick.
