Video recipe: General Tso’s Chinese chicken

"A genuinely mouthwatering dish with an Asian kick that will knock your chopsticks off! Don't be fooled by other General Tsao impostors: this is simply the best Chinese chicken you will ever have.

Serve with steamed broccoli and white rice." You want to try it? Check out the instructions in this video by All Recipes.
