General Tso's can be more than the saccharine, gloopy sauce soaked into flabby, over-breaded chicken to which we've become accustomed. With just a little technique and a little love, the 45-minute wait for this takeout mainstay can be better spent making it yourself.

I find it a crime punishable with jail time if you eat General Tso's chicken without fried rice.

I tried the recipe and it turned out great and it was really good, but kind of too spicy for me hahah. I'm not sure what kind of chilis you used in the video, but I used thai chilis and I probably should've only put half the amount.

What's the song playing in the background? Sounds like a remixed version of 'Give her up' by Smokey Robinson.

I love general tso's but that's biggest complaint is that its rarely any bit spicy. Maybe it's just what I grew up with but I find it not spicy anywhere nowadays.

I followed this recipe to the exact teaspoon last night (ok, I skipped the salting of the rice and I'm glad I did) and it came out waaaay too salty. The chicken after frying by itself was really crispy and tasty but with the sauce,...holy salt lick! Anyway, I was kinda baffled. The only ingredient I had never used was the Chinese cooking wine. I bought the Shaoxing variety because it was not specified which type to use (and there a few different ones). So I tasted some after the fact,...wow, really salty and kinda harsh. I chose poorly. So, next time I make this there's a variety called Pagoda Shaoxing that I will use with no salt. I will not be denied the delicious homemade General Tso's chicken!

@Sir Parkington Safely or satisfactorily? ;-) I'd say 5-6 people at the most. You should definitely adjust up.

I’m not old enough to drink is there a substitute for vodka I could use
To be completely honest I'm surprised he didn't substitute some salt for MSG. He's only said about a billion times over the years that MSG tastes good, and it's a staple in cheap Chinese takeout.
