I did it! I never thought I would be so proud to have created a perfect replication before but this one takes the cake. After endless research on General Tso's Chicken, and seeing that most videos did not do it justice, I set out to make a great homemade version and this one tastes exactly like I know General Tso's is meant to taste. This is one of many Chinese Takeout recipe videos I filmed, 7 more to come!

GENERAL TSOS’ SONG Lyrics
Put one egg white into a bizzole
and beat it lightly, and follow this bro
a slip of soy sauce and some cooking wine
and mix it up it’s so so fine

1/4 tea of baking soda does the trick
tried mixing with a fork, better off with a whisk
and add some corn starch to the pot
take a moment to smile and mix it up
then toss in your cut up chicken thigh
and smack it around, it’ll make you feel high

(chorus)
Now take another bowl
you slip in some of that corn starch yo
and add a little more baking soda
you’re becoming a cooking yoda

(Verse)
In a final bowl make the masta sauce
a taste of soy, this recipe is boss
a little slip of chinese cooking wine,
rice vinegar and sugar is so divine
give it a splash oh dat sesame oil
and add corn starch, to thicken when it boil

toss that marinated chicken into your corn starch mixture
and dress it up real nice like your last date from tinder

(chorus)
And now it’s time to fry those bizzles
get that oil jumping at 375 sizzle
crisp up that chicken oh so nice
your in a land of crispy paradise

(verse)
Now in a wok get some oil hot
and add scallywags that your knife just fought
add minced ginger and garlic into the mix
and a few dried chilis, it’ll fry up quick

Now mix those funkers all together
then pour in yo master sauce,
this part is oh so clever
cause when the hot sauce hits the pan
that corn starch thickens up, this shits my jam
that chicken meets the sauceand they make sweet love
they become one creation A General Tso’s sent from Heaven Up Above

(chorus)
Yeah you know it’s all about general tsos
a chinese takeout tastes just like you know
a masterful creation, simple and divine
i cannot believe I’m drunk on wine?
