How to make Healthy General Tso's Chicken

    • To begin, whisk the egg whites along with soy sauce and oats. Add the chicken pieces to it and allow it to rest for about 20 minutes.
    • Preheat the oven to 190 C.  Grease a baking dish with cooking spray. Place the chicken in the baking dish along with its sauces and drizzle oil over it.
    • Bake uncovered 25 to 35 minutes or until juice of chicken is no longer pink and the chicken is getting crisp - for about 10 minutes. Once done, remove from the oven.
    • Now for the sauce, whisk together the soy sauce, palm sugar, chilies and vinegar. Add the oats and 1 cup of water and whisk again. Keep the sauce mixture aside.
    • Heat a teaspoon of oil in a wok over high heat; add the sesame seeds, ginger, onion and garlic. Saute for a few seconds, add the oat sauce mixture and the grilled chicken. Toss on high heat until the chicken gets well coated with the sauce for a good 4 to 5 minutes.
    • Once done, check the salt and spices and serve hot.
