Needing to come up with a really cleaver way to disguise our chicken for dinner tonight, I searched the internet and found this wonderful recipe for Low Carb General Tso Chicken from Linda via George Stella….. I tweaked it a little for my own liking but the results was amazing.. my son couldn’t believe it was low carb!!! Try this it is amazing!!!
GEORGE’S GENERAL TSO’S CHICKEN
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon orange zest, I used dried
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 tablespoon granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda (see my comments below)
1 clove garlic, minced I used 2
1/4 teaspoon chili paste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, cut in bite size chunks
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons red bell pepper, diced, 3/4 ounce or about 1/4 of a small pepper
Whisk all of the marinade ingredients in a small bowl and pour into a gallon zipper bag along with the chicken strips. Gently knead the bag to evenly distribute the marinade. Marinate in refrigerator 1 hour. Remove the chicken from the bag, reserving any excess marinade (see my comments below).
Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Cook and stir the chicken 2 minutes until it starts to brown. Add the bell pepper, green onions and marinade. Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly, until the sauce has reduced and the chicken is done. It may not take quite that long.
Makes 4 servings
This is 5 stars !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
