I made this for a potluck and my friends thought it was a hit. Enjoy!
I really wanted toorder in Chinese food, but I decided I would take on the challenge of making it myself. I was craving General Gau’s Chicken, one of my favorite things to get from Chinese restaurants. In researching it online, I discovered that it goes by a variety of names, including General Tso’s Chicken.
I didn’t have any chicken in the house, so I used tofu. I’ve had it before at restaurants with fake chicken, so I figured tofu would be pretty similar.
I chose this recipe from The Hungry Mouse because it was the only one I could find that didn’t call for corn starch, which I didn’t have. I also modified her recipe a lot based on what I could find. If you want to make this, I HIGHLY recommend using her original recipe. But I’ll post what I did and what I learned from the experience, because in this case I think one of the important things is how it is cooked, not just the ingredients you use in the sauce.
