The Best General Tso's Chicken Recipe

If the British can proudly call Chicken Tikka Masala their national dish, then surely it's time that General Tso got his chicken in our national spotlight.

Teriyaki chicken with vegetables Made by @eatgoodforlife❤️@eatgoodforlife. Check her out •••• 2-3 lbs organic chicken breast, chopped 12-16 oz fresh broccoli 4-5 large organic carrots, sliced Pepper flakes, optional 2 Tbsp olive oil ••••• Teriyaki sauce 2 Tbsp ginger, chopped 2 garlic cloves 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/3 cup cold water 2 tsp cornstarch 1/3 cup honey ••••• In a small bowl mix the Teriyaki sauce ingredients. If you are just making the sauce for future consumption follow this step otherwise follow the next paragraphs. In a small sauce pan, over medium to low heat, heat the sauce until thicken stirring occasionally. About 5 minutes. Let the sauce cool and store it in a glass air tight container in the refrigerator. In a large heavy bottom saute pan, over medium to high heat, add the olive oil. Add the chicken and carrots and cook stirring occasionally until almost tender, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook further for another minute. While the chicken is cooking, place the broccoli on a safe microwave dish and microwave for 6-7 minutes. Depending on how strong your microwave is you may need less time. My microwave is not too powerful so I use 7 minutes but 3-4 minutes may be enough in yours. Add the Teriyaki sauce from the bowl to the chicken and carrots and stir for about 1-2 minutes or until it thickens. Turn heat off and add the broccoli and pepper flakes if using. Stir to combine. Serve over brown rice or rice noddles. NOTE: I doubled the Teriyaki sauce for us.
