Instant Pot General Tso’s Tacos

General Tso’s Tacos

General Tso Chicken Tacos are a lot. Why fuse together classic Chinese American food into tacos? Because I can, that’s why. You know what this is. Spicy, sticky chicken in a taco. Yeah, its really that good. In 20 minutes, using your instant pot or air fryer. Bonus points if you have an air fryer; try tossing the chicken in 1/2 cup of cornstarch and air frying for 15 minutes for an extra crunch. Instant Pot General Tso’s Chicken Tacos really are that good.

  • 2 Pounds Boneless chicken
  • 1/4 Cup gochujang (See below for substitution ideas)
  • 1/4 Cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 Cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Mirin
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 Bunch Scallion
  • 2 Tablespoons Ginger
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 Cups broccoli slaw mix


  • Mince garlic and ginger. Combine with gojuchang, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey, and corn starch into saucepot on low heat to just a simmer.
  • Cube chicken into taco sized chunks, season with salt and pepper. In a large pan over medium high heat or instant pot on "Saute more", spray with non stick, and saute chicken until cooked and 165 deg F, ~5-7 minutes depending on size.
  • As chicken cooks, dress slaw with salt, pepper, and a splash of rice wine vinegar. Slice scallion, set aside.
  • When chicken is cooked, immediately toss into warm sauce to coat. Assemble tacos, garnishing with extra sauce, scallion, and sesame seeds.


No gochujang or mirin? No problem; combine 1/4 cup sriracha, 2 extra tablespoons of honey, and a 1/4 cup of beer as a direct substitute for both!
