General Tso Chicken

Enjoy this Asian classic by sautéing the chicken instead of frying.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, cornstarch, sweetener (like Splenda), soy sauce, vinegar and ginger; set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and red pepper flakes; cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. Add chicken; sauté until browned all over, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add reserved sauce to pan and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. After sauce has slightly thickened, add the broccoli florets. Remove from heat.
  5. Serve chicken and sauce over rice.
  6. Yields about 1 cup chicken with sauce and 1/2 cup rice per serving.
