    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.

      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.
