The first time I tried Gen tso chicken recipe I went along with it exactly the way it was written. It was too much corn flour, and too many eggs. The recipe called for separation of the egg yolks, and whites. Using egg whites only, the chicken pieces weren’t getting brown. I wanted them golden, and they were bent on remaining white.

  It was one big hassle looking for a recipe to use the egg yolks. They waited in the fridge for me to look up recipes. I forgot, and after a week I threw them into the trash. I know I wasn’t being prudent. 

The second time around I used one whole egg for the slurry, and got the desired golden color. Now I use one egg for one chicken breast, and add broccoli, green onions, bell pepper, and carrots too. I enjoy my chicken plus the veggies.
