Make the sauce for the General Tso’s chicken

While the chicken is baking, prepare your sauce.

In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, water, paprika, chili paste, salt, corn starch, minced garlic and freshly grated ginger. Whisk to fully combine and dissolve cornstarch, and set mixture aside.

In a medium saucepan, boil together the 1 cup of sugar and ¼ cup of water over medium heat. Watch constantly, until the caramel starts to turn a light amber color.

Carefully add sauce mixture to saucepan, and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Toss the sauce with the cooked chicken pieces. Serve chicken over steamed rice. Top with sesame seeds and spring onions
