General Tso’s Wok Chicken II (Organic Chicken)

This recipe for four is quick, easy and tasty. If you enjoy Chinese, chicken and Broccoli you’ll love this one. This recipe is a slight variation from my original (more veggies and no white meat) and only takes about 40 – 45 minutes from start to finish including firing up the Egg; note that cleaning of the dirty dishes is not included in the preparation and cooking time.
