General Tso’s Chicken

General Tso’s Chicken

Serves 6 Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup Shaoxing wine or sherry cooking wine
  • 1 (14 ½ ounce) chicken broth
  • 2-3 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • Canola oil, for the griddle

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken and cornstarch. Toss until the chicken is well coated.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients except the oil and green onions. Whisk until well incorporated.
  3. Preheat Blackstone griddle to medium-high heat. Add a thin layer of oil and the chicken. Cook for 6 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Toss the chicken frequently using spatulas to ensure all the sides are seared.
  4. Add half of the sauce to the chicken, stir continuously until the sauce is thickened and coats the chicken. Add the green onions and remaining sauce. Stir while it reduces. The sauce should be thick and sticky, fully coating the chicken.
  5. Remove from the griddle and serve over rice.
