General Tso’s Chicken

This chicken from Food and Wine was slightly time consuming and had a lot of steps but the end product was delicious!  While it felt like a healthier version of a restaurant’s General Tso’s, let’s face it – it’s still chicken fried in oil so let’s not kid ourselves.  Before frying, I coated the chicken in the batter using a freezer bag which worked perfectly (less mess!).  The sauce thickened up nicely and was very tasty – not too sweet, not too spicy.  I won’t make this often because I try to stay away from frying food but if you are a big fan of General Tso’s, I say go for it!
