Szechuan Chicken With Peanuts 6 Ww Pts

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by AndreaVT96

I've made this several times and we really enjoy it. I believe it came from a Weight Watchers cookbook, but I can't quite remember. It has 6 WW points, if you are following that program. Even if you're not, it's great, and I think even better than what you'd get in a restaurant. My husband, who is definitely anti-diet food anything, really likes it.

I made a wonderful variation on this dish and rather than post a near duplicate will comment here. I loved this recipe and found it both easy to prepare and satisfying. In my own meal, I made three minor changes on the vegetables 1) cutting the carrots on the diagonal and then into match sticks, 2) used a combination of red and green peppers and 3) added 1 stalk of sliced celery. If you are looking to conserve points, omit the peanuts and save a point. Dinner will still be great. SO glad this recipe is posted. Thanks!!
