Chinese: general tso's chicken 2

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Chicken breasts boneless, skinless, cut into 1\" pieces
3 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
1 \N Egg white; beaten frothy
1 cup Vegetable oil
3 \N Dried hot chili peppers broken in half
2 \N Garlic cloves; chopped fine
1 \N 1\" piece gingerroot; peeled and finely chopped
1 tablespoon White wine vinegar
1 tablespoon White wine
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
1 tablespoon Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
¼ teaspoon Salt


In a glass bowl, place chicken pieces. Combine 1 tbls. soy sauce and 1 tbls. cornstarch. Blend in beaten egg white. Pour over chicken and toss to coat well. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.

In a small bowl, combine remaining soy sauce, vinegar, white wine, and 1 tsp. cornstarch; mix until smooth. Stir in sugar, sesame oil and salt.

In a wok heat oil. Deep-fry chicken, a few pieces at a time, about 1 minute, or until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towel. Pour all but 2 tbls. oil out of wok. To the wok, add chili peppers, garlic and ginger; stir-fry 1 minute.

Pour sauce mixture into wok and cook, stirring, about 1 minute, until thickened. Return chicken pieces to wok. Mix well and serve immediately.

I like to serve this with rice and Sauteed Snow Peas and Red Peppers.

The chicken is spicy hot with the dried chili peppers, so adjust to your taste. Enjoy!
