General Tso’s Chicken (also called General Tso Chicken) is one of the most requested Chinese recipes from my readers. Like other popular Chinese dishes here in the United States, you can’t miss General Tso’s Chicken if you love Chinese food. It’s always served at Chinese buffet; it’s also a very popular Chinese takeout item. Many don’t even dare ask “How to make General Tso Chicken?” because they assume it’s difficult. But the good new is that it’s really not that hard to make at home.
What is General Tso’s Chicken and Who is General Tso?
General Tso’s Chicken originated from Hunan, China, but from what I read, the connection of the dish to the brave Chinese general General Tso is largely a US or western reference. In any case, the authentic recipe of General Tso’s chicken always calls for some dried red chilies—an important ingredient in Hunan cooking. Chinese rice vinegar also plays a vital role in lending the bold vinegary note to the dish. Try my General Tso’s Chicken recipe and you will never need another takeout again!
