    General Tso's Chicken W/ Orange

  • 3/4 lb Boneless chicken breast
  • 2 tsp Dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Rice wine - or dry sherry
  • 1 tsp Ginger root -- minced
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup Peanut oil
  • 2 Dried red chiles halve lengthwise
  • 1 Tbsp Orange peel -- coarse chop
  • 1/2 tsp Fine ground roasted sichuan peppercorns (optional) *
  • 2 tsp Dark soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame oil
  • * No loner available in the United States due to Agricultural Departmant Import ban.

    This popular dish gets a lift from the addition of orange peel, hence its other name, Orange Peel Chicken.

    CUT CHICKEN INTO THIN SLICES 2 inches long, cutting against the grain. Put it into a bowl together with the soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, ginger, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Mix well, and then let the mixture marinate for about 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet until it is very hot. Remove the chicken from the marinade with a slotted spoon. Add it to the pan and stir-fry it for 2 minutes until it browns. Remove it and leave to drain in a colander or sieve. Pour off most of the oil, leaving about 2 teaspoons. Reheat the pan over a high heat and then add the dried chiles. Stir-fry them for 10 seconds, and then return the chicken to the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir-fry for 4 minutes, mixing well. Serve the dish at once.
