Peng Chang-kuei Chinese: 彭長貴; 1918–2016) was a Taiwanese chef who is generally credited with being the creator of General Tso's chicken, a popular Chinese dish in Western countries. Peng was a chef to Chiang Kai-shek, and migrated to New York City in the 1970s, opening a restaurant which was frequented by United Nations officials. He made the dish sweeter to cater to the US palate.
