General Tso’s Chicken (zuogong ji, 左公鸡) Named after the famous nineteenth century General Zuo Zongtang, it is now a Chinese dish beloved by American dinners. It is made from battered balls of chicken fried in a tangy and/or mildly spicy sauce with scallions and sometimes broccoli.


Spring Rolls (chunjuan, 春卷), or sometimes called eggrolls, are a common Chinese appetizer of deep-fried yummy goodness. Fillings can vary, but usually have a mixture of vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots, beansprouts, or mushrooms, and sometimes meats, such as pork, shrimp, and chicken. The filling is then wrapped in a wheat or rice flour wrapping and deep fried.
