Gluten free General Tso's Chicken (adapted from culinarycouple.com)

2 lb. boneless chicken cubed
2 Tbsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. gluten free soy sauce
2 egg whites
1/2 c. cornstarch

Stir together liquids and marinate chicken in it until room temperature.

Heat peanut oil in skillet. Cook chicken, using lid to keep it from spitting too much, until nice and golden.

Sauce:
1 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. gluten free soy sauce
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. ginger, finely chopped
2 tsp. chili garlic paste (I substituted chinese sweet chili sauce)

Heat oil in separate small skillet. Cook ginger and garlic a minute or two. Add remaining ingredients and cook over low heat until thickened.

Pour sauce over fully browned chicken pieces and simmer over low heat stirring to ensure all pieces are coated.

We had this over white rice. I wish I had thought of topping it with green onions, but I forgot!

I’ve been known to cheat and either use prepared chicken and/or jarred sauce!  Not as good, but alot quicker on a week night.  The sodium content is high either way, so this is an occasional meal for us!
