Not so General Tsao’s Chicken


This dinner was a disaster from the start.  I had a meeting on the night the dinner was to be cooked so I left instructions to follow the recipe on for General Tsao’s Chicken.  Well my better (cough, cough) half could not find the recipe so they cooked the chicken for me in a bit of oil.  No batter.  Ugh.

So, when I got home I had cooked chicken and a bunch of vegetables.  I decided to try and make the sauce for the General Tsao’s chicken anyway without the ginger as my family does not generally like ginger.   It was AWFUL!  There was 3/4 of a cup of sugar in this recipe and it was so sickeningly sweet that even my children thought it was pretty bad.  We ate most of it but I will NOT be using this sauce again.
