Becky's General Tso's Chicken Over RiceSubmitted by: MRSTEJANO
IntroductionThis is my favorite "go to" recipe! I got it when I was going to Weight Watchers, then I fine-tuned it to how I like it. Now it tastes just like you'd get in a restaurant! Be sure to measure the rice and chicken because it's tempting to "overdo it"! This is my favorite "go to" recipe! I got it when I was going to Weight Watchers, then I fine-tuned it to how I like it.

3/4 cup canned reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoon peanut oil
2 medium scallions, chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, minced or 1 chili, minced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 cups cooked brown rice, kept hot
In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger. Set aside.
Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and pepper. Cook 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook until browned all over - 5 minutes.
Add reserved sauce and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, 3 minutes.
Serve chicken and sauce over rice. Yields about 1 cup of chicken and sauce over 1/2 cup of rice per serving. Enjoy!

My wife loved it (yay), I would have liked a little more sweetness. I might dredge the chicken in a couple Tbs of flour next time. Also, cooking the veg separately and the chicken in 2 batches to keep help it brown and not steam in its own juices. Added a bag of steamed broccoli. - 6/25/12
