      instead of alcohol you could use anything tart/sugary.. pineapple juice, grape juice, almond extract,white grape juice... grats on the recovery bro.

                      Try low sodium soy sauce and chicken stock.

                                        The sauce came out very dark compared to the one in your video. Maybe the soy sauce was too dark?

                                              Never had an order of General's chicken - i tend to go for the more authentic dishes.
