Delicious. Hard to believe it is a low calorie meal. I should have put more red pepper flakes as I like my general tso spicy, but it still was excellent. SO easy to make, and yet so good. Submitted by:

The actual recipe yields per serving about 1 cup of chicken & sauce and 1/2 c. of rice for 323 calories per serving. The recipe makes about 4 servings. It's quite delicious, light, but spicy hot, so adjust your pepper flakes according to your taste or omit. Submitted by:

This was pretty good. I made an Emeril recipe a few years ago, but of course i wasn't low fat. This was a nice taste of low fat chinese. It was only 3 servings for us, though. Submitted by:
