General Tso’s chicken is a dish named after Zuo Zongtang (Tso), a famous Qing Dynasty statesman and military leader of the Hunan province in China. However there appears to be very little connection of this dish to General Tso, nor is this a regularly eaten meal in Hunan. However, regardless of origins, this is a wonderful meal that you should definitely try and add to your collection.
The wok deep-fried chicken provides a golden crispy coating that blends beautifully with the thick sweet and slightly spicy sauce.
The sweet, salty, spicy and sour flavours combine beautifully to provide a wonderful depth of flavour. When served on a bed of Jasmine Rice, the sauce blends through to provide a thick coating that simply adds to a great meal.
