Everyone has their fall-back recipes that are quick and tasty. General Tsao’s Chicken is one of mine. I usually have all the ingredients on hand (peppers, onions, carrots all keep well) and thawing a single chicken breast is very quick.
This meal takes under 20 minutes and is lighter then what you what you’ll get at the typical Chinese restaurant (chicken isn’t breaded and more vegetables). I usually shop at Stop&Shop and use the House of Tsang brand General Tsao’s sauce.
