Many years ago, when I was still living at home, my parents fell in love with a Chinese restaurant in our town. We ate there all the time. We also ate there every Christmas Eve after our church service. So, every Christmas I want Chinese food. I never have it, but I always crave it.
Right after Christmas I decided I was going to try to make my own General Tso’s sauce. I was pleased with the results and have made it twice now. It is very easy and quick to make.
Low Carb General Tso’s Sauce
2 Tbs. oil
6 Tbs. Rice vinegar
6 Tbs. soy sauce
1/2 cup water
5 Tbs. Splenda
1 tsp. xanthan gum
3 tsp. red chili paste
3 tsp. chili garlic sauce
Put all the ingredients into a small sauce pan. Stir. Cook on medium heat. Bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the mixture is thickened. Remove from heat.
I make this in a small sauce pan while I have my chicken in a wok on another burner. Once the chicken is done, I move it onto a cookie sheet and finish the vegetables in the wok. I let everyone decide how much sauce they want. More for me because I like the heat and less for Olivia since she doesn’t.
I hope you enjoy this if you try it!
