Recipe by Princess Lisa

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

Delicious! What a great Weight Watchers recipe...hubby and I both loved it...it may not be the gooey sticky stuff...but it really did have the flavor...I downsized the recipe to serve 2 and hubby wanted seconds...so next time I guess I will have to make more...lucky guy can have seconds...this is a keeper...thanks for posting the recipe...made for Spring 2014 PAC
