General Tso’s Meatballs

Getting My Chinese Takeout Fix!

One of my favorite takeout dishes from the Chinese restaurant is General Tso’s Chicken.  However, I rarely ever order it because I know that it’s terrible for me.  It’s definitely something that I have as a splurge.  When I saw this recipe on Facebook, I was super excited to try it.  I changed a few of the ingredients to suit my own tastes and cut out the step where it tells you to fry the meatballs.  These little things are delicious and a perfect way to get that Chinese takeout fix!
