The Eight Chinese Cuisines 湘菜– 左宗棠鸡 Zuo Zongtang Ji (General Tsao’s Chicken)

Everyone loves General Tsao’s Chicken! But apart from the name, it has absolutely nothing to do with the General. The dish was invented by a cook named Peng Changgui back in 1970. When asked about the name of the dish by the then Premier of the Republic of China Chiang Ching-Kuo, Peng came up with the name at the top of the head. The dish was then popularized in the US by Kissinger and an ABC Special Feature in the 1970s.
