General TSO Recipe Hacks

We love Chinese! One of our favorite dishes is General TSO Chicken and I have the perfect recipe if you'd like to try it. Easy peasy. Really. Would I lie? I've been making this recipe for years. But after making it last week, I decided to share a few hacks for this dish that makes it even EASIER! With these hacks, I promise that this is a twenty minute meal ready to eat in no time! It's perfect for those busy days of after school activities. 

Hack #1: Use already prepared chicken
I use Walmart's Great Value brand of popcorn chicken to make this recipe. Who has time to touch chicken, much less cut it up (I don't touch raw chicken!)? Depending on the size of the chicken, I usually use half a bag, maybe a little more.  It depends on how much extra sauce you would like to have for your rice. We like lots of sauce, so I normally double the recipe. 
Hack #2: Use frozen fried rice
Before last week, I always made brown rice for this recipe. A few weekends ago, I was in the frozen section of our grocery store when I came across this fried rice in a box and it is delish! So dang flavorful for being so inexpensive!  I'll probably never make fried rice again. 

Today I'm sharing these easy hacks over at The Blended Blog for Tasty Tuesday! Hop on over and see what everyone else is cooking up today!

  1. Guess who else has a Chinese quick recipe coming up? This girl! Next week. I love General Tso so much. Girl, when you go to Walmart, go to the deli and try their General Tso chicken wings - holy heaven they are so good (but so damn bad for you.) xoxoxox

    1. Really? Walmart has Chinese food? Hmmm...I've heard great things about their chicken tenders in the deli. Oh! And their banana pudding, too! I was so disappointed when we went to Panda Express in Alabama last month that they did not have General Tso chicken! What the what?!?!

  4. Sometimes Costco has a ready made frozen Genersl Tso's we love. I use to buy frozen fried rice at Costco or Sams. (I can't remember) I've seen PF Changs bottled sauces recently. I bet they'd work awesome with your chicken hack. Happy Tuesday. XO
