General Tso's Chicken & Rice

Prep Time: 5 min      Cook Time: 15-20 min


  • Chicken (I buy the bag of frozen skinless chicken breasts and then defrost as much as I need)
  • White Rice (If you have a rice cooker–use that. If not buy some white instant rice)
  • General Tso Sauce (in a bottle–brand doesn’t really matter)



  1. Cut up the defrosted chicken breasts into small bite size chunks.
  2. Cook the rice (following the directions on the package).
  3. Put a little oil (about a silver dollar size) into a Cast Iron Skillet or pan and cook your chicken breasts on a medium heat stirring as needed.
  4. Before the chicken is fully cooked (but after it’s mostly cooked–about 3-5 minutes) add the Tso Sauce and reduce heat to low. Let simmer for up to 10 minutes.
  5. Put rice in the bowl. Add your saucy chicken on top.
