Super Easy General Tso Chicken Dinner

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by AmyMCGS

This is the quick and easy way that I make General Tso's chicken when we want Chinese food. It's lower in fat than the deep-fried chicken version that Chinese restaurants serve. I'm sure others do it this same way, and I hesitated about posting such a simple "recipe", but I'm posting it here so that I can see the nutritional information.

quinoa instead of rice and used soy beans, water chestnuts, sprouts, peppers, onions and zucchini.
