General Tso's Chicken
Serving Size: 4
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast -- cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup fresh broccoli florets
4 sliced green onions -- optional
hot cooked rice
In a large Ziploc bag, combine cornstarch, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Add chicken pieces; shake to coat evenly.
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly brown, about 2-3 minutes. Add chicken pieces to a lightly greased 3qt-5qt crock pot.
In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients (about 1 cup). Add half of the sauce mixture to crock pot. Stir until chicken is evenly coated. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
One hour before serving, add broccoli florets and remaining sauce. Cover and cook on low until chicken is no longer pink and broccoli is tender. Serve over hot cooked rice. If desired, top with sliced green onions.
