    The coating for the chicken was really good. I could see making chicken nuggets with this coating. I'm only giving this a 4 star rating because the General Tso's sauce came from a premix package(which was very good BTW) instead of home made. Made for Pick a Chef Preemie book 4.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Take Chicken Breast and Cut Into Halve Length Wise.

    2
    Done

    Cut the Halves Into One Inch "cubes" (they Don't Come Out Cuboidal in Shape but Chunks, This Is Perfect).

    3
    Done

    in a Medium Bowl Mix Egg Whites, Soy Sauce, 1 Tablespoon of Each Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper.

    4
    Done

    Add Chicken Pieces to Egg White Mixture and Allow to Marinade For at Least 15 Minutes, This Process Is Called Velveting, It Is an Asian Technique That Although I Myself Found Odd, Really Does Allow For the Chicken to Maintain Its Moisture During the Cooking Process.

    5
    Done

    in Another Bowl Mix Flour, Paprika and Remainder of Spices.

    6
    Done

    Place Marinaded Chicken Pieces Into Flour Mixture, Ensuring Pieces Are Completely Dredged.

    7
    Done

    in a Medium Sauce Pan Heat Canola Oil Until Hot.

    8
    Done

    Once Oil Is Ready Drop Dredged Chicken Pieces Allowing to Crisp and Turn Light Golden Brown, Flip and Cook Other Side Until Lightly Golden Brown.

    9
    Done

    Once Chicken Is Cooked, I Remove from Frying Pan and Place on a Cookie Sheet That Has Been Lined With Paper Towel to Absorb the Excess Oil, by Giving the Cooked Pieces Enough Space to not Over Lap You Will Maintain the Crispness and not Feel the Guilt of Eating Something Fried.

    10
    Done

    in a Small Pot Heat Trader Joe's General Tso's Sauce Until It Simmers, Remove from Heat.
