General Tso's Chicken
Mike wrote such an inspiring tribute to General Tso's Chicken that I decided to try making it myself. I don’t consider myself a chef but I do like to eat so I like to cook new things periodically. Stepping out on a limb I decided to cook the General’s Chicken for my wife on her birthday since she like it as much as I do. Mike provided a recipe; I bought the ingredients (with a few substitutions) and took on the birthday present dinner. The results were very good. I have now earned a new dish to cook in the Oedewaldt household. It won’t earn a place on the weekly menu (it’s too time consuming) but it will earn a place on the occasional weekend craving for Chinese food. I quickly earned a second chance at cooking the General’s Chicken the next week for my visiting In-laws.
