Saw this today! Didn't want to lose it. Here's what the description said: "Kung Pao-wer! Everyone knows steamed is the way to go when eating Chinese food out. But when you're home, well, steaming your Asian chicken is for the birds (not literally). Why? Because it's TOO easy to create a saucy, spicy, wonderful dish that has a tiny fraction of the calories and fat of restaurant versions. See below for proof -- and feel free to experiment using all sorts of other veggies (green beans, carrots, bean sprouts, broccoli) and lean protein (shrimp, lean steak, tofu, and even lean pork tenderloin ROCK Kung Pao style!)Serving Size: 1 heaping portion (half of recipe) Calories: 230 Fat: 4g Sodium: 720mg Carbs: 17g Fiber: 3g Sugars: 7g Protein: 30g
