General Tso's Cheat Chicken

So I made some GT's Chicken last night, but I may have cheated...ok so I did. My grocery store sells these seasoning packets you can find them by the soy sauce and other chinese foods in ur grocery store. Its made my Sunbird (yellow pack). They are soo good I have tried a few of them. They are so quick and easy and really edible, no for real. Anywyas...

You cut up the chicken and toss it w/ flour

Pan fry in about 2 TBS of vege oil until about done. (I always put a lid on chix when pan frying otherwise I have shoe leather) I sprinkle w/ garlic and crushed red pepper during this time.

Meanwhile I mixed my seasoning packet w/ 1/4 sugar, 2 TBS Soy Sauce, 3/4 cup water and added it to the chix and let it simmer for a few mins. that took all of maybe 25 mins from start to finish. Well I wanted some Crab Rangoon(thanks to Adrienne) but I didn't have the stuff so I ordered some from the Chinese Rest. about a mile away...well I ended up ruining my 'steamed' rice so i also ordered some fried rice for the two of us...well whats fried rice and crab rangoon w/out a spring roll??? So anyways $16.00 later all I made was the actual chicken. This dinner was supposed to be cheap!!! **But to be fair I like my General Tso's Cheat Chicken better than the actual Chinese restaurants. Plus I KNOW im eatin chicken!!
