The owner of the Chinese restaurant in our town was nice enough to show me how to make his Hunan chicken (my favorite!) when they sold the restaurant in December, 2012. He used a wok over a huge gas flame and whipped this up in about 3 minutes! Americans will have to make do with a saute pan, and I'm sure a stove won't cook nearly as fast as his wok on a flame. I hope I remembered most of his recipe!
I was looking for a good-for-you snack. I remembered something my second grade teacher told us (way back when)... if you only had two foods -- peanut butter and milk -- you could survive. This snack contains both. A serving size of 5 peanut butter balls is: 3 WW points and 145 calories. It contains 5 grams of fat (mostly the heart-healthy monounsaturated kind), 6.5 grams of protein, 1.3 grams of fiber, and 17 grams of carbohydrates. You could add fiber by adding unflavored Benefiber in place of some of the powdered milk, or by adding oatmeal, wheat germ or flax meal. You could also boost the protein by adding protein powder. Just keep the liquid / peanut butter / powder ratio the same.
This was an experimental meal, but when my guys tasted it, they said it was a winner. Very quick and easy, suitable for beginning cooks. You can embellish this basic version however you choose by adding chopped green chilies, black olives, etc. I like to add fresh lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and salsa on top at serving time. 1/8 of the casserole is 7 WW points.
