Ingredients You'll Need

General Tso's Chicken
3/4 lb Boneless chicken breast
2 ts Dark soy sauce
2 ts Rice wine or dry sherry
1 ts Finely chopped ginger root
1 ts Cornstarch
1 ts Sesame oil
1/3 c Oil, preferably peanut
2 Dried red chiles

1 tb Chopped fresh orange peel OR
2 ts - dried citrus peel

1/2 ts Roasted Sichuan peppercorns
* (finely ground), optional
2 ts Dark soy sauce
1/4 ts Salt

Directions

CUT CHICKEN INTO THIN SLICES 2 inches long, cutting against the grain. Put


it into a bowl together with the soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, ginger,


cornstarch and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Mix well, and then let the mixture


marinate for about 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet until


it is very hot. Remove the chicken from the marinade with a slotted spoon.


Add it to the pan and stir-fry it for 2 minutes until it browns. Remove it


and leave to drain in a colander or sieve. Pour off most of the oil,


leaving about 2 teaspoons. Reheat the pan over a high heat and then add the


dried chiles. Stir-fry them for 10 seconds, and then return the chicken to


the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir-fry for 4 minutes, mixing


well. Serve the dish at once.
