Okay, so in my humble opinion, when ordering General Tso Chicken, Sesame Chicken or Orange Chicken from a Chinese restaurant, the base sauce reicpe is the same, they simply add spice to the General Tso, sesame seeds to the Sesame Chicken, and orange peel (with a little spice) to the Orange Chicken.
So, that being said, you can do the same with this recipe. I omitted the red chili’s because I don’t like the spice and added a little extra orange peel because I like it citrusy. I also used fresh ginger (chopped) instead of ground and again, it’s just a personal preference.
The soy sauce I used was called Ponzi sauce which is a soy sauce with a citrusy flavor to it….are you starting to see the pattern with me =) All in all this is a great recipe and I will definitely be making again and again.
This recipe is incredable!!! We did “tweek ” it a bit. First, prepare your seasonings!!! It makes the cooking and mess so much better (I learned the hard way the first time.) Also, double the sauce. I also added a pinch of 5 spice (found at your Asian market) and it made the sauce come to life.
Delicious. I followed the recipes with only a few differences. Couldn’t find a good price on thighs so I used breasts. Didn’t want to buy peanut and sesame oil for one recipe, I didn’t miss it. I loved it and so did the family, but next time I will cut open some of the chilis and add more, it just wasn’t spicy enough for our hot mouths.
I want more orange flavor, but my husband doesn’t. So until he makes this himself, I will add more orange peel. I will use less soy sauce also, I think it hide some of the other flavors. Good recipe, thanks.
I stumbled upon this recipe quite a while ago and forgot to review it. I made a ton of changes, but it wasn’t due to preference, it was more due to a lack of ingredients in the house. However, it still came out excellent, so here’s a way you can sub a few things and still have it come out really good: Used boneless/skinless breast instead of thighs, regular onion,
1/4 cup (or more depending on personal preference) of chili powder instead of chilis, 2 tsp of orange extract instead of zest, regular white vinegar instead of rice, and substituted all of the oils with regular oil, but added 2 tbsp of peanut butter to give it that peanut oil flavor. VERY IMPORTANT to use the double fry method though, this keeps the chicken super crispy! Excellent recipe.
