Quick General Tso's Chicken

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4-5 servings

Total Time: 20 minutes


2 lbs organic chicken breast, cut into small cubes
8 green onions, chopped
3 Tbs arrowroot powder, or cornstarch
2 Tbsp chopped fresh ginger
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs sesame oil
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp pepper flakes
Brown rice to serve


1/3 cup peach jam
1/4 cup gluten free hoisin sauce, or soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
3 tsp arrowroot powder, or cornstarch
2 Tbsp gluten free soy sauce
1/2 cup water



In a bowl, mix together peach jam, hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, arrowroot powder and water. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Dredge the chicken in the cornstarch and shake off any excess. Cook the chicken in the olive oil and when it is almost browned, 8-10 minutes, add the ginger and cook further for about 2-3 minutes. I cooked the chicken a total of 11 minutes or so

Add the sesame oil, and green onions. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Simmer mixture for 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens up a bit.

Serve garnished with green onions, hot pepper flakes and sesame seeds.

  13. Hi………….. This is a great site.

  14. Thanks for this article. It’s just what I was searching for. I am always interested in this subject.

  15. I love the idea of the sushi bowl, and I eat variations on this quite often! But this is pretty high in fat and calories because of the oil and shrimp. You could omit the oil completely to make it much healthier and then just season with a combination of herbs, some low sodium tamari/soy sauce mixed with wasabi, some lemon, ginger, and/or some mango. Just a thought!
