Major Taylor’s Chicken formerly known as General Tso’s

Hello world…

A couple of weeks back I had a hankering for some General Tso’s chicken…

However, over the years my faith in the quality of “chicken” one gets from the local carry-out has wavered… to the point that I only order either a shrimp dish or one with chicken wings… (there’s no denying a wing is a wing…right?)

Which led me to discover a Youtube video that showed how to cook gourmet General Tso’s chicken… It looked simple enough… and it was! Although, I didn’t have all the ingredients my substitutes seemed suffice… and I believe I’ve narrowed down the recipe to…

  1. chop chicken breast into bite size pieces…
  2. fry said pieces like you’re working at Popeyes…
  3. create your own personal “General Tso’s” sauce… in my case “Major Taylor’s”… I used 1/2 cup of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup of Stir Fry sauce and 1/4 cup of Teriyaki sauce… (point being… whatever was in the fridge and/or cabinet)
  4. pour sauce in a wok-like pan… bring to a bubble…
  5. dump fried chicken bites in pan… stir…
  6. Serve over rice… (I used Uncle Ben’s)


General Tso’s Chicken done your way…

…other tidbits… you can add your own spice and veggies as you see fit!


Enjoy the pics!
