Crock Pot General Tso's Chicken

Tonight I actually made a recipe that I've never had before. General Tso's Chicken. To be honest, I had no idea what it even was, except that I've seen it on the Chinese Take Out Menu where my husband used to order back in the day. Those who follow my blog know that I don't usually try and make any type of Asian Cuisine. I never had it growing up so I never really had a desire to make it. My husband on the other hand loves everything. Thai, Japanese, Chinese....you name it. He loves it all. So, for him, I decided to give this Crock Pot General Tso's Chicken a try. My version may not be the traditional recipe but it is easy, healthy, and was absolutely delicious. So good in fact that I plan on adding it to my meal rotation. Delish!
