    Princess Lisa's Note:

    I have found this lower fat (not greasy) version better than the original. I use sesame oil instead of peanut oil.

      Made this recipe twice. The second time I added some chopped red peppers, onions, and pea pods. It is very good and easy to make. I made the recipe as stated except I eliminated the oil and covered the pan good with Pam spray. It is delicious both ways. Thanks for sharing, I will be making it again.

      I made this for lunch today (and probably tomorrow, because there's a bunch leftover!). It was easy, came together fast, and it was a nice change from the norm. I followed the recipe, except that I used rice vinegar for the white wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil instead of peanut oil, and I had it over quinoa. I feel this has the exact right amount of spiciness, and cooking times were right on. Compared to non-Weight Watcher General Tsao chicken, it lacks the "stickiness" of the sauce. Maybe that is hoisin sauce or brown sugar instead of white or something... Anyway, it is a good recipe in it's own right. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
