Submitted by: ANGIEV227

Introduction

My family loved this! It's my own low fat version of the chinese dish. I served it over rice and with frozen egg rolls. Kind of high in sugar....but low in fat. Hope you enjoy! My family loved this!

    The nutritional information does include the rice. I included 2 cups of rice so 1/2 cup per serving

    Brown Sugar Splenda and brown rice make it healthier if one wants to lower sugar and have a healthier dish. Thanks for sharing. - 4/23/09

    Recipe is good but had to leave off the soy sauce due to the sodium content, if I can find a low (for real, low) sodium soy sauce it would be really good. Will make again.... - 4/21/09

  • The only ingredient missing for us was the pineapple and the pineapple juice. I was able to put this together and serve in about a little over 2 hours. The sauce was outstanding. Great recipe! - 2/1/10

  • Fantastic! I was skeptical because I love Chinese food and don't usually like how it comes out at home. But I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything! I was also concerned because the sauce smelled strongly of vinegar when I took it out of the microwave but it was great! I wouldn't change it! - 7/14/09

  • I put the sauce ingredients with three frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot on high for 5 hours. Then I added veggies and pineapple and cooked while I made brown rice in the rice cooker. Shred the chicken and spoon all over rice! YUM! ALSO, reduced brown sugar to 1/2 cup...still sweet! - 5/3/09
