General Tso's Chicken

This recipe is easy and fast to prepare! All you need is a package of either sun-bird brand general tso's chicken seasoning mix, or any spicy chicken mix you can find by the gravy mixes in your local super market. If yet you still can't find those and you're pretty good in the kitchen, all that is in this pouch is corn starch, garlic and onion powder, white wine powder (distilled white wine), spices (you need it spicy!) salt and lemon juice.

1/4 cup flour
1 lb. chicken, cut into chunks
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbs Soy sauce
3/4 cup water
2 Tbs olive oil

In either a zip-lock bag or a bowl toss the chicken with the flour. Heat up the oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
On the side in a separate bowl mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, water, and seasoning mix.
Add the flour coated chicken and cook until evenly browned.
Stir the seasoning mixture and add to skillet. Bring it to a boil, then turn down the heat and let it simmer until it thickens a little.

I usually make jasmine rice and broccoli with this chicken. Making all three of those only takes about 25-30 minutes once the chicken is in the pan.
