Easy General Tso's Chicken Recipe| Çitra's Home Diary

General Tso's chicken is a sweet deep-fried chicken dish that is served in North American Chinese restaurants. The dish is named after Zuo Zongtang (also romanized Tso Tsung-t'ang), a Qing dynasty statesman and military leader, although there is no recorded connection to him nor is the dish known in Hunan, Zuo's home province.

A dish made of deep-fried batter-coated pieces of chicken that are cooked in a sweet, tangy, and sometimes spicy sauce. Some vegetables commonly served.

Even this dish is so popular in US, you might be surprised to learn that General Tso’s chicken is actually not very big in China — and it doesn’t even originate from mainland China. In fact, it hasn’t even been around for long: Its creation is widely credited to Peng Chang-kuei (who recently died) in 1952.

And for my weekend meal, I make this easy yet tasty General Tso's Chicken. As an Asian, once in a while, I need to spoil my taste with something that reminds me of home. 
You may remember (or not 😊) my previous General Tso!s Chicken. This time I make a non-spicy version cause now I want to share it with my kid.
If you want the spicy version you can check my recipe here

And for you, Asian food lover, you should try my Teriyaki chicken noodle or sesame chicken bowl here. Also, check my ultimate Easy Chicken Katsu recipe here.

General Tso Chicken Recipe
By: Çitra's Home Diary

Serve: 3-4 shares

For fried chicken
🥣 400 gr chicken meat (thigh or breast), cubes
🥣 2 tsp soy sauce
🥣 pinch of white/ black pepper powder
🥣 1 egg ( or ¼ cup leftover egg white), lightly beaten
🥣 ½ cup flour
🥣 ½ cup tapioca/cornstarch flour
🥣 1 tsp baking powder
🥣 pinch of salt
🥣 Enough cooking oil for deep fry

Making fried chicken

1) Marinate chicken with soy sauce, a pinch of pepper powder and egg ( egg white). Set aside for about 30 minutes.

2) Sift together flour, tapioca/cornstarch flour, baking powder, and salt.

3) Heat enough cooking oil in a wok or deep fry pan. Drag the chicken cutlets over the flour mixture, gently pinch it so the flour nicely sticks into the cutlets.

4) Make sure the oil is hot enough, dip a bamboo chopstick into the oil, if it's bubbling much, you are ready to go. Fry chicken cutlets until golden brown. Strain and lay them over paper towels.
Note: you can double fry the chicken twice to make it more crispy.

🥣 1 Tbsp sesame oil*
🥣 4 Tbsp soy sauce*

2) Heat vegetable oil in a wok/pan. Stir fry garlic and ginger until fragrant. Stir in chili (if using). Add in sauce mixture then stir continuously until the sauce gets thick and bubbling. Add in fried chicken and stir until all chicken covered by the sauce.

"General Tso's Chicken" adalah hidangan ayam goreng yang biasa disajikan di restoran Cina di Amerika. 
Walau  hidangan ini sangat populer di AS, kamu mungkin akan terkejut mengetahui bahwa  General Tso chicken ini sebenarnya tidak terlalu populer di Cina sendiri - dan bahkan tidak berasal dari daratan Cina. 

Makanan ini terbuat dari ayam goreng tepung yang dimasak dengan saus agak asam dan manis, dan terkadang dibuat untuk versi pedas. 

Biasanya disajikan bersama nasi putih dan sayuran tumis sederhana sebagai pendamping, umumnya brokoli.

  1. Thank you for sharing a non spicy version of the recipe! I love Asian food but I am not used to foods that are too strong and spicy. Unfortunately I have started only later in life to eat spicy foods, but I'm getting better and I'm learning to appreciate it more and more. Still, a non spicy version is something I really appreciate as it makes it easy for me to taste the dish.
