General tso’s chicken 

This is my favorite chicken dish that I enjoy making when we start getting into fall. The combination of different sauces and spices along with the crunchiness of the fresh broccoli gives this chicken dish a new twist to our weekly diners. Ready in less than 30 minutes, I usually serve it with simple white rice. 

1 pound of chicken diced into cubes

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tbsp of vegetable oil

2 tbsp of cornstarch

1 tsp of garlic powder 

For the sauce 

1/4 cup of cornstarch 

1/2 of cold water

1/2 cup of soy sauce 

1/4 cup of honey or agave

1 tsp of red pepper flakes or 1/4 tsp of sriracha 

1 tsp of garlic powder

1 tbsp of ginger

1 cup of steamed broccoli 

In a large bowl, toss the chicken along with the salt, pepper and cornstarch. Heat up 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a wok and sautee the chicken for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side. In a small pan, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. Heat up for about 4 to 5 minutes. Pour that sauce over the chicken, add the broccoli. Toss to coat and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. 

This dish is perfect when served with white rice topped with chopped scallions.
