Harold Villarosa, like many of us, grew up eating General Tso's chicken. It's a takeout staple that you've probably ordered at some point. We challenged Harold to make his own General Tso's chicken with fried rice faster than it takes for delivery to arrive. Was he up to the challenge?
Looking for a way to support restaurants and cook at home? Do as Harold does in this new video and take on takeout: order your personal favorite delivery dishes and try to cook them at home in the same time it takes for them to arrive. You’ll be putting money into the restaurant industry, challenging yourself, and you'll have double the food. See if Harold, who grew up eating General Tso’s chicken at countless Chinese-American spots in The Bronx, can create a version similar to the takeout one.

I worked at a Walmart deli counter for a year or so. We had the General's chicken, and the way we sauced those delicious chicken bites is, we dumped the freshly twice-fried chicken into a big plastic bucket, which we then poured the sauce into. Lid went on, we shook it for about a minute, and dumped the sauced chicken into the serving pan. Not exactly fancy, but the General's chicken was good.

Its good he isn’t eating the delivery because I would have spit in his food for the way he spoke to them lol “how longs it gonna take!” Vs “How long do you think that will be ?” In a nice tone.

I haven’t even seen the video yet but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that he already has all the ingredients he needs to replicate the takeout and then in that case the answer is yes but most people don’t have all the ingredients they need at any given moment
