      This is a little different than General Tso's chicken, but it was absolutely delicious. Am trying to make every dish a little healthier lately and was not expecting such a great flavor in such a simple to make dish.
      I didn't change any ingredients, but did cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 T., but after eating it, I think next time I will only use 1 T. (I don't think we will miss the extra sweetness, and it saves a few calories.)
      I also almost doubled the chicken broth because the sauce got very thick quickly, and we like ours not quite so "gelatinous", if that is a word.....??
      Any recipe that makes my family go back for seconds is 5 stars in my book.
      Next time I will add water chestnuts, green pepper strips, and some asparagus.

      Incredible dish which I served over brown rice. I double checked the points and I came out with 8 points....so just beware. My DH and I were very impressed with this meal and will plan on doing it again and again!!! Thanks for the posting!

      I don't think this tastes like General Tso's chicken, that said it was good. I added some red bell peppers, chunks of onion and sliced water chestnuts to give it more texture.
