General Tso's Chicken

My mom and I went down to Ellenton to shop this weekend. For those of you not from the Tampa Bay area, Ellenton is a town between St. Petersburg and Sarasota where they have this kick ass outlet mall. We go down at least once a year to shop. They also have this great kitchen store called Le Gourmet Chef. In addition to cookware, bakeware and kitchen gadgets, they also sell incredible food products like sauces, etc., which they provide numerous samples of around the store.

My mom bought me this General Tso's sauce, one of my husband's and my favorite Chinese dishes. I used it last night and it was great. The recipe is posted below my lovely picture. Here is a link to the site, in case you want to purchase some of this yummy sauce. In addition to this sauce, I bought a pyrex glass baking dish with lid. Just something I needed and will come in handy. (Wish I had it when I made my enchilada lasagna the other night.) Le Gourmet Chef has great prices, too.

2 Tbsp oil
1 lb chicken breast, cut into cubes
All-purpose flour
Broccoli florets, steamed
1/4 cup General Tso's sauce

Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a non-stick skillet. Pass the chicken through the flour, dust off any excess. Add the chicken to the pan and toss around until lightly brown and the chicken is cooked through. Once the chicken is done, reduce the heat to medium-low, add the broccoli to the pan and then the sauce. Toss to coat and let cook for a few minutes. You may need to add a little more sauce. It's your call. Serve over brown or white rice.
