General Tso’s Chicken

Ingredients for Sauce:
1/2 cup corn starch
2 tablespoons water
3/4 teaspoon fresh ginger or 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
3/8 cup sugar (just under 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons white wine or sherry

Ingredients for Batter:
1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken cut into chunks
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup corn starch
1 cp sliced onions
4 small dried hot pepper

For the sauce, place all ingredients in a jar and shake well to dissolve cornstarch.
For the batter, place an egg in a ziploc bag and shake to coat chicken evenly. Add cornstarch and mix until chicken is covered. Deep fry until chicken is crispy and then drain. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and add onions, peppers and stir fry for 30 seconds. Add the sauce mixture. Cook until thick. Then add the chicken and cook long enough to heat through. Adjust the heat according to your taste – or omit all the peppers for a delicious dish without the heat. ENJOY!
