Ingredients

How to make it

  • Whisk together broth, Splenda (or sugar), soy sauce, vinegar and ginger.
  • Set aside.
  • Wait until just before pouring over the meal to add in the cornstarch. (Otherwise it gets gloopy and slugdy.).
  • Spray a wok or non-stick skillet liberally with Pam (or drizzle in some vegetable oil to coat the bottom).
  • Add scallions, garlic and red pepper flakes.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add chicken and brown.
  • Use more spray (or oil) if necessary to assist with the browning. Cook about 5-8 minutes.
  • The chicken should be almost done before you add the sauce.
  • Add cornstarch to your sauce bowl (put together in step one) and whisk to create a slurry.
  • Add to your chicken in the pan and heat until boiling, then reduce to a simmer.
  • The boiling of the sauce will cause the cornstarch to thicken.
  • Serve over rice.

    I know I am a fan and I commented once but in the mean time I have fixed this dish. If I could I would double the 5 and you would see to pictures of Elmer on the fan list. That being said, I had help and was in a hurry so things went a little astray. Did you know that if you substitute TBS for tsp on the red pepper flakes and you cook it at a high heat that it produces a noxious smoke? It was so hot the responding firefighters could not eat it. Have you ever seen a pixie fly around the room looking like a fire breathing dragon? That is what Lura looked like after a few bites. I found it very tasty and I think once I get the scorch marks in the table sanded down and it re-varnished you won't be able to tell where I spilled on it. The emergency room nurse was very impressed with the blisters on the inside of my mouth, I admit I could not stop eating it. I am going to have the left over for lunch today. Next time and there will be a next time I will use tsp and pay more attention.

    Thanks for the great post. I have saved it to try at another time. I love General Tsos' but it is usually too oily. Your substitutions make it a much healthier option. :) :)

    I keep trying to type this but our Golden Retriever and German Sheppard are vying for my attention. Great recipe, there I got it out. I love Chinese food but can do with out all of the fats and oils. This is the type of Chinese recipe that I am on the look out for. Thank you!

    Really smart. I love that your recipe gives the options of familiar ingredients like sugar or substitues for those with allergies like yours. I love General Tso's chicken but have been avoiding Chinese restaurant food because it tends to be more oily than I want to eat. Your recipe sounds delicious and not greasy. Hooray, I am bookmarking this one.
