Partner your jasmine rice with yummy and saucy General Tso’s chicken recipe.

The procedure consists of two cooking procedures one for the diced chicken breast and the other for the sauce. The dish was named after the Chinese General named Zou Zongtang, a general from Qing dynasty of Imperial China in 19th century. However, according to Wikipedia source, the dish has no connection with the general and the general himself haven’t tasted the dish. Some competing claims from Taiwan and the United States Chinese restaurants stressed that they are the 1st source of the dish, however, some are anecdotal and others are difficult to prove or deny.
