      I find it a crime punishable with jail time if you eat General Tso's chicken without fried rice.

      instead of alcohol you could use anything tart/sugary.. pineapple juice, grape juice, almond extract,white grape juice... grats on the recovery bro.

              Is it General Tso or General Tao? I work at a Chinese restaurant and it’s General Tao there and the owners are Chinese....... I’m just confused..... which is it?

                          You put the salt on the rice after you cook it? Am I the only one that finds it weird?

                              Takes 45min if you happen to have Chinese wine and vodka lying around.

                                    what happens to half the reserve marinade? 3 tbs go into the breading but what about the rest of it?

                                        I made this yesterday and it surprises me that the chicken without the sauce coating tastes like Jollibee's Fried Chicken

                                              Why did you set aside half the marinade? This is driving me mad you never went back to what you did with it.

                                                he put it in the dry coating for the chicken if you put any type of sauce in with your dry coating it adds all these little nooks and crannies for the sauce to cling to it also makes small bits of really crunchy shell

                                                  Sorry Babish I will continue to just order my General Tso's as takeout and not make it myself, I am not about to start frying chicken while drunk and not wearing any pants, which is when I typically order my takeout.
