General Tso’s chicken is a staple of American Chinese menus nationwide. There are probably as many recipes as there are Chinese restaurants in the US (over 40,000). This particular recipe comes from the filmmakers behind The Search for General Tso, a documentary film from Ian Cheney and Jennifer Lee.

Watch the trailer below and if you insist upon making General Tso’s chicken at home instead of picking it up from your local Chinese restaurant, keep reading for the recipe.
