General Tso's Chicken

I made this night for dinner and there are NO left overs it was a huge hit in fact Porter my pickiest of eaters ate 3 helpings and was talking about it still this morning! Definitely will be making it again!

General Tso's Chicken
1 pkg thinly sliced chicken breast (about 7 breast) cut into cubes
1 cup cornstarch
4 eggs beaten
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground ginger

combine the spices with the cornstarch and toss chicken cubes lightly in the seasoned starch. then toss in the eggs and back in the corn starch. Fry till golden brown and drain place in a 9x13 pan

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white vinegar (less if you don't like vinegar) I used just under 1/3 cup
4 T Ketchup
1 T Soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger

Whisk and combine well, taste and adjust seasoning to taste, if you like more vinegar or soy whatever add it now. Once the chicken is all fried, pour the sauce over the chicken and toss to coat well. Bake at 350' for 15-25 minutes till chicken cooked all the way through and the sauce is thickened. Serve over white or fried Rice

* For a true General Tso's Chicken you would add Red Pepper flakes to the sauce but being that my kids are little I figured they wouldn't like it. And it was awesome without it!
