Keto General Tso Chicken and Broccoli

13 ratings

General Tso is a fairly recognizable Chinese takeout menu item. The dish is spicy, a touch sweet, and typically sticky. This mock version has all the flavor elements, but some typical ingredients, like cornstarch and sugar, were left out to keep the sauce healthy. This is a good recipe for meal prepping and makes a fantastic lunch!

Recipe Steps

steps 7

20 min

  • Step 1

    Prepare the chicken breast by removing any unwanted fat. Chop the chicken into 1 or 2-inch pieces. If you need to chop your broccoli in advance, do this as well.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Heat the first amount of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place in the chicken and sprinkle the salt and pepper over it.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Cook the chicken until just the outside is cooked, then toss in the broccoli. Place a lid on the skillet and cook until the chicken is just cooked through and the broccoli turns bright green. Stir occasionally to avoid burning.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Transfer the cooked chicken and broccoli to a bowl for the time being. Use a slotted spoon so all the liquid from cooking remains in the skillet. Then, stir in the second amount of olive oil, soy sauce, whole thai chilis (3-4), and minced garlic into the skillet. You may slice the chilis in half if you wish.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Put the lid on the skillet and cook on a very low heat for about 2 minutes. You may remove the whole chilis at this point, or you can leave them in the final dish. Then, stir in the remaining ingredients.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    The sauce should thicken quickly here. Return the chicken and broccoli to the skillet, and make sure all the ingredients get coated in the sauce.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    Serve hot!

    Definitely not anything like General Tso's chicken. Will definitely not prepare again. The cooking technique is interesting for a stir fry.

      The ingredients were hard to find. I substituted sesame oil for tahini and a jalapeno for the Thai chilies. It had decent flavor but not exactly Chinese take out.
