This is a very tasty version of General Tso's chicken. If you are following Weight Watchers Core, the cornstarch is less than a half point per serving. On Flex, this is about 6 points per serving.
- 3⁄4 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons Splenda granular, artificial sweetener
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 medium scallions, chopped
- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- Cut chicken into 2 inch pieces.
- In a small bowl, mix together chicken broth, cornstarch, Splenda, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger. Set aside.
- Heat oil in skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, add chicken and cook until browned, about 5 more minutes.
- Add sauce and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes.
- Serve chicken and sauce over rice.
Good taste, but not like the General Tso we get at our local takeout place. I used sugar instead of Splenda since the recipe I had from the WW site called for sugar. I served it over steamed broccoli and white rice. A good, healthy chicken and rice dish that I'll make again.
LOVED this recipe! Chinese food is one of my favorites, but this is even better than anything you can get in a restaurant -- AND it's super easy. Thanks for the great, healthy recipe!
Everyone loved this. It wasn't exactly like the General's Chicken that we know from the restaurant but it was a wonderful light sauce. I was going to cook up some frozen Asian style veggies on the side but decided to pour them in since I felt like I had extra sauce on hand (I doubled or maybe trip IDK but I ended up with LOTS of sauce) and I am glad I did because it was great. Some brown rice on the side made this the perfect meal that even my non-weight watching family enjoyed. Thanks for posting.
