General Tso’s Chicken is very popular in the United States, but is usually pretty sweet. This authentic version from our March 2017 Cookbook Club selection Phoenix Claws & Jade Trees by Kian Lam Kho is full of flavor and will make you want seconds.

From the Author: “This version of General Tso’s Chicken resembles the original created by Peng Chang-Kuei in Taiwan. Strictly speaking it is not a traditional Hunan dish, but the technique and flavors are inspired by the chef’s Hunan background. It is not as sweet as the standard American version, and is laced with lots of garlic.”
