Light General Tso's Chicken
3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp corn starch
2 Tbsp splenda
2 Tbsp lower sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 Tsp ground ginger
2 medium scallions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced (I used the garlic in a jar)
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 pound chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces (I used chicken breast tenderloins because they are thinner and cook faster)
2 Tsp canola oil
In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, corn starch, splenda, soy sauce, vinegar, and ginger. Set aside.
Heat oil in skillet and sauté scallions, garlic, and pepper flakes for about 2 min.
Add chicken and cook till brown, about 5 min.
Add reserved sauce to pan and continue cooking until thickened and chicken is cooked through, about 3 min.
Serve this alone or eat it over brown rice.
