General Tso’s Chicken is a takeout favorite that I’ve made a bit healthier. It’s just as spicy, sweet, and zesty as your favorite Chinese takeout restaurant makes it!
This recipe never disappoints. It’s just as mouthwatering as your favorite Chinese takeout.

TOTAL PREP TIME: 30 mins.
NOTE: I make this dish a little healthier by ditching the deep fryer and instead I cook it in a heavy skillet with just 3 tablespoons of peanut oil.
Whisk together the warm water and cornstarch. Add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, grated ginger, and pepper flakes and whisk to combine.
In a medium bowl whisk together the egg whites, corn starch, salt, and white pepper. Toss the chicken pieces until they are evenly coated.
