Directions

1. In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the egg whites and cornstarch. Toss the chicken in the mixture. 2.In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, heat the vegetable oil. Sauté the chicken pieces, about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from pan and reserve. 3. Meanwhile, stir together the soy sauce, sambal, honey, orange juice, and sesame oil in a small bowl or measuring cup. Wipe pan clean, add the additional 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Sauté the garlic and ginger for about a minute, until fragrant, and then add the soy sauce mixture. Once boiling, add the chicken and toss to coat. Check seasoning and serve. 4. For the Scallion Brown Rice: In a small sauté pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the scallions, and cook until softened. Pour over the rice in a bowl, and add the soy sauce and sesame seeds. Fold together until thoroughly combined, check seasoning, and serve. Helpful Tips: 1. This dish clocks in around 550 calories, so it's a better-for-you option than traditional General Tso's Chicken. 2. The cornstarch makes the chicken crispy and keeps the breading from getting soggy. 3. If you don’t have sambal, then use any barbeque sauce.
