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.

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.
