  1. Cut chicken in 1/2 inch chunks.

  2. Combine wine, soy sauce, and corn starch. Marinate chicken in mixture for 30 minutes.

  3. Cook some rice to go along with this dish.

  5. Cut veggies into 1/2 inch chunks. Mince ginger. Cut onions into 1/4 inch bits. Mince garlic.

  8. Add garlic, ginger, onion, and red pepper flakes. Stir fry for 1 minute.

  9. Add sauce and broccoli. Stir fry for 1 minute. Cover with lid if its not boiling.

  13. This recipe was adapted (by Jerry Adams) from a recipe given to him by Frank from work. He changed the name by adding the 'Variant' It is delish and lower in fat than the regular General Tso's that we adore! Think it's worth posting again for those who request Chinese yum food.

  14. ALSO: I believe Marsala can be substituted for Sherry (another alcoholic beverage) but I know of no non-alcohol substitute. I guess, just omit altogether.
