  • Sorry, but this recipe is so unbelievably salty that it's not edible! Even with low-sodium Soy sauce, I don't think I could do it. Plus, it tastes nothing like General Tso's. Sorry, but I won't be making this one again :-( - 3/29/11

  • This sounds yummy!! I've loved General Tso's chicken but rarely have it so this sounds like a delicious healthier alternative. I'm going to try this soon! I do have a question though, how much oil is used to fry this? - 5/2/10

  • I'm not a fan of this dish. It tasted like pure salt and vinegar. I added some brown sugar which helped a bit, but not enough to make the dish enjoyable. I did use a little bit of the sauce, added some garlic, and sauteed broccoli in it, which was pretty good. - 1/3/10
