    FeChef's Note:

    This is a light and crispy version of General Tso Chicken.I got this recipe from a local japanese cuisine restaurant (dont ask how ;P) Its healthier then your standard chinese restaurant version because it uses japanese panko breadcrumbs and white meat chicken instead of flour dredged fatty dark meat chunks typical chinese restaurants use.
