Here’s a recipe for General Tso’s Chicken that you can try at home:


For the chicken:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups vegetable oil, for frying

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 cup water

For serving:

  • Cooked rice
  • Steamed broccoli


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cornstarch, salt, and black pepper. Add the chicken pieces and toss to coat.
  2. Add the beaten egg to the chicken and stir to coat.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and crispy.
  4. Remove the chicken from the pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, honey, cornstarch, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using).
  6. Add the sauce to the pan and cook over medium heat until it thickens, stirring constantly.
  7. Add the chicken back to the pan and stir to coat with the sauce.
  8. Serve the General Tso’s Chicken over cooked rice and steamed broccoli.
