Wow, I'm sure there are plenty of tutorials out there but do you have a favorite? Or any guidance?

Yesterday we attempted General Tsos chicken, very labor intensive and a little soggy. It was good and fun to make, but there's a reason for all those Chinese restaurants out there.
I've learned that cornstarch is the key to a lot of Chinese cooking. You need enough to get things crispy, but not so much that they get gluey. It's a tightrope.
