Dump-and-Bake General Tso Chicken
"It's baked, not fried! This Dump-and-Bake General Tso Chicken is a lighter, healthier version of the Chinese restaurant classic. With just one dish and about 10 minutes of prep, it's even better than take-out! Did I mention that my General Tso Chicken is baked, not fried? That means that you won't feel weighed-down and sick to your stomach after your meal, you won't have to stand at the stove with a hot pot of oil to tediously fry individual pieces of meat, and you won't have to spend your precious money on overpriced restaurant fare. WIN-WIN-WIN! This is lighter, healthier, and dare-I-say BETTER than the original! I've created a sweet and savory sauce that you whisk together and pour over your raw chicken. It all bakes together in one dish as the sauce bubbles and thickens. Stir in some peanuts at the end for crunch, garnish with sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds, and you've got a restaurant-quality meal ready in minutes (without many dishes to wash at the end)!"
