Directions
10 STEPS
1
Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes and set aside.
2
In a large bowl, toss the chicken cubes with 1/2 cup of cornstarch, ensuring all pieces are coated. Shake off excess cornstarch and place the coated chicken on a plate.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, water, sugar, and 2 tbsp of cornstarch to make the sauce.
4
Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
5
Cook the chicken in batches, turning occasionally, until golden and fully cooked. Transfer the cooked chicken to a bowl and set aside.
6
Leave about 1 tbsp of oil in the skillet and add garlic, ginger, and red chili flakes. Sauté for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
7
Stir in the sauce, letting it simmer and thicken. Adjust seasoning with additional soy sauce or rice vinegar if needed.
8
Add the cooked chicken into the skillet and toss to coat with the sauce.
9
Drizzle sesame oil and toss in the chopped green onions.
10
Serve the General Tso's Chicken hot, garnished with optional sesame seeds.
