General Tso’s Gluten Free Chicken

Ordering gluten free Chinese can be difficult sometimes. The last couple of times I’ve tried, I’ve gotten sick. There is room for contamination anywhere from the soy sauce to the batter to they use.
This recipe not only tastes great, but is also a lot of fun to make! 

Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Serves 8

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 (14.5 oz) chicken broth

1/3 cup soy sauce
1 egg
1 cup corn starch

3 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 (16 oz) frozen stir fry vegetables, thawed
1 large yellow onion, sliced
3 1/2 cups water
4 cups instant brown rice

1. In small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and mix well, set aside.
2. In medium bowl, add all batter ingredients, mix well. The mixture will have a paste-like consistency. Add chicken to batter to coat.
3. In large wok, heat oil on medium-high about 3 minutes. Use fork to remove one chicken piece at a time. Allow excess mixture to drip off. Fry chicken until crispy. Set cooked chicken aside in medium bowl. Repeat until all chicken is fried.
4. In the same large wok, heat oil on high heat. Add onions and stir fry to mixture, cook about 3 minutes. Add sauce to stir fry, cook until thick. Add a little water if the stir fry gets too thick.
5. While stir fry is cooking, begin cooking rice as package directs.
6. Add chicken to stir fry, cook until all is hot and bubbly. The quicker the chicken is reheated the crispier the chicken will stay. Serve chicken stir fry on rice and enjoy!

Spice up the meal with Cayenne Pepper Begin with adding 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper and slowly add more to taste. Cayenne pepper can have a pretty good kick to it, and make your meal too spicy if you add too much.

Have a busy day tomorrow? No worries, this gluten free meal can be prepared the night before; simply cover and refrigerate to bake the next day.

4 medium bell peppers
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups marinara sauce
1 3/4 cup water
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp garlic salt
2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked
1 jalapeno (optional), chopped
feta cheese (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375°. Coat a 13x19x2in glass baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
2. Halve each pepper lengthwise, from the stem to the base. Remove the seeds and cut off the stems.
3. In a heavy skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until nicely browned and the liquid has evaporated, about 5 min.
4. While the meat is cooking, in a separate pan bring water to a boil. Add rice, simmer for 1o min, covered. Stir in 1 cup marinara sauce, the cooked rice, onion, oregano, thyme, and garlic salt.
4. Spoon mixture into peppers. Spoon any leftover mixture around the peppers. Drizzle remaining 1 cup marinara sauce over peppers.
5. Bake, covered, for 30 min. Sprinkle with cheese. Enjoy!

Please feel free to use any type of bell pepper you prefer. I usually purchase the pepper that is in season and cost less. To spice up your Stuffed Pepper Poppers add a splash of your favorite hot sauce. Enjoy!
