Wikipedia: General Tso’s chicken
General Tso’s chicken (pronounced [tswò]) ( (also General Tse’s chicken)) is a sweet deep-fried chicken dish that is served in North American Chinese restaurants. The dish is named after Zuo Zongtang (also romanized Tso Tsung-t’ang), a Qing dynasty statesman and military leader, although there is no recorded connection to him nor is the dish known in Hunan, Zuo’s home province.
