Obviously it will depend on the recipe used by the chef. I found an article on Livestrong that reads, "According to the recipe for this dish published on Blogchef.net, one serving contains 776 calories, 31 g fat, 6.6 g saturated fat, 58 g protein, 63 g carbohydrates, 1,726 mg sodium and 337 mg cholesterol. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a typical restaurant serving of General Tso's chicken provides approximately 1,300 calories, 11 g saturated fat and nearly 3,200 mg sodium."
I'm a vegetarian so I don't know exactly how much would be in a "typical restaurant serving", but 6-8 pieces sounds to me like AT LEAST one typical restaurant serving.
