    General Tso's Chicken

    recipe by MEAN CHEF

    4 servings
    40 minutes 20 mins prep

    1 lb chicken thighs, boned and cubed
    3 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup cornstarch, plus
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    5 dried chili pods
    1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    2 tablespoons rice wine
    3 tablespoons sugar
    3 tablespoons soy sauce

    In a large bowl, thoroughly blend the 1/2 cup of cornstarch and the eggs; add the chicken and toss to coat.
    If the mixture is too thick, add some vegetable oil to separate the pieces.
    In a small bowl, prepare the sauce mixture by combining the 2 tsp cornstarch with the wine, vinegar, sugar and soy sauce.
    First-Stage Frying: Heat 1-2 inches of peanut oil in a wok to medium-high heat (350-400).
    Fry the chicken in small batches, just long enough to cook the chicken through.
    Remove the chicken to absorbent paper and allow to stand (this step can be performed well in advance, along with the sauce mixture, with both refrigerated).
    Second-Stage Frying: Leave a tablespoon or two of the oil in the wok.
    Add the pepper pods to the oil and stir-fry briefly, awakening the aroma but not burning them.
    Return the chicken to the wok and stir-fry until the pieces are crispy brown.
    The General's Favorite Sauce: Add the sauce-mixture to the wok, tossing over the heat until the sauce caramelizes into a glaze (1-2 minutes).
    Serve immediately.
    Serves 4, along with steamed broccoli and rice.

    I am so deeply saddened to share with you the news of Peabody, she passed away February 28, 2012. Robyn was a very special lady. I know, I personally thought she was the perfect southern lady. I met her a few times, as she lived right up the road from me. She had a kind and generous heart. I know we will all miss her dearly. She put up a valiant fight in her struggle with cancer.
