I love how much healthier this General Tso’s Chicken recipe is! No batter or deep frying means this is a much healthier version of one of our favorite takeout meals. Serve it up with steamed vegetables or our Easy Fried Rice recipe, and you have a complete Chinese takeout meal at home for half the calories!
General Tso’s chicken is a favorite in most Chinese restaurants. With its traditionally deep-fried pieces of chicken and red sauce with that little kick of red pepper flakes, it is one everyone enjoys. This recipe takes some of the unwanted fat and calories away but leaves you with all the flavor you love.
A gas or electric wok is a great addition to your kitchen for making this dish in the traditional style. You can also use a large skillet if you don’t own a wok for the same result. The sauce is the most significant part of this recipe, and these ingredients stack tons of flavor without the calories that a typical breading and deep-fried version would have.
Enjoy this hearty and healthier version of General Tso’s chicken with your family instead of stopping off at your local Chinese restaurant. This dish is a perfect way to save money and eat healthier!
