General Tso's Chicken

General Tso's Chicken
1/3c soy sauce
3 dried red peppers, chopped
(original recipe called for 6, but that is too spicy for me)
4 green onions, just the green part, sliced
1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
1/2c broth
1 Tbsp chili paste
2tsp lemon juice
1/3c sugar
Heat on medium low for 5 minutes then turn heat up to medium and add a slurry of 2Tbsp cornstarch and 2tsp water. Let thicken for a minute and toss with tempura fried chicken. Mix half package of tempura with 1/2-1c COLD water. Dip chicken pieces in and deep fry for 4-5 minutes. Re-fry all chicken for 2 minutes to make extra crispy so it will hold the sauce well.
