General Tso’s Chicken is a sweet and slightly spicy Asian dish that comes together super quick and everyone loves!
General Tso’s Chicken is made with tender chicken thighs and has a slightly sweet and spicy sauce thanks to pineapple juice and a touch of cayenne pepper!
It’s the start of Spring Break this week. How did that happen?
I feel like school just barely started and now we’re already nearing the end of the school year??
I seriously don’t want to sound like an old person, but WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?!
I’m wanting the time to slow down so I can enjoy it with my kids.
Last week we bought ourselves a little toy hauler camper trailer so we can spend this summer cruising around, completely unplugged. Well, maybe not 100% unplugged. But we’re excited.
It has a cute little 3 burner stove inside, which is perfect for making super easy dinners like this General Tso’s Chicken.
The chicken is quickly coated in cornstarch and pan fried until crisp.
Then all you have to do is whisk up the sweet and spicy sauce, add it to the pan and cook until it thickens (which is super quick) and then toss the chicken back in.
Give it a few stirs to coat and you’re ready!
If you wanted to make the dish a little more spicy, just add a little extra cayenne pepper or you can drizzle with some Sriracha, which is my favorite way to enjoy this.
Bulk up the dish with some chopped onion and red bell peppers, or just leave it all chicken, the choice is yours!
If you wanted to add the extra veggies, I would just toss those in the skillet after the chicken and before the sauce. Then add the sauce directly to the veggies.
Even though this chicken is typically on the spicy side, my kids still devoured this without any hesitation.
Then they asked for more!
