General Tso's Chicken (Unbreaded)

“The closest thing I've found to my favorite at August Moon, though I'm much too lazy to bread the chicken (which I haven't found any breading similar enough for my family's taste, unfortunately). All my family members who have tried this absolutely love it, even my mother-in-law who dislikes most Asian food! Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients. Please enjoy! :D”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl or Tupperware, dissolve chicken bouillon in hot water. Allow broth to cool to at least room temperature, then mix in cornstarch until well blended.
  2. Stir in sesame oil(opt), garlic powder, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, sherry, vinegar and red pepper flakes. Set aside in fridge.
  3. Heat oil or spray oil in wok or large skillet, brown chicken on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Add more oil, if necessary, stir fry green onions until softened.
  5. Remove sauce mixture from fridge, give it a stir if any ingredients have settled to the bottom. Pour into pan with green onions, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Cook to desired thickness. I like mine nicely thickened and with a dark amber color.
  6. Fold in cooked chicken, evenly coating. Serve with steamed or fried rice. Enjoy! (Note: You can beef this up a little bit by adding your favorite stir fried vegetable when cooking the green onions, I often use broccoli and stir fry to tender crisp.).
