General Tso Chicken and Steamed Broccoli - So, once again the best Chinese food in Madison comes from one place: my kitchen. I made some General Tso's chicken from scratch. The sauce is pretty easy, but battering and frying the chicken takes some prep and a lot of oil. I used peanut oil. This is definitely not a healthy recipe but I like making it because it tastes so fresh and there is no MSG.
