NS General Tso Chicken

General Tso Chicken

Counts as: 1 NS entree + 2 veggies + Free

1 NS chicken breast/patty-diced and rinsed
1 stem green onions-chopped
1/2 cup bell pepper-chopped
1/2 cup onion-chopped

1/4cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp white wine vinegar
1 pkt splenda
1/2 clove garlic-minced
1/4 tsp minced ginger
1/4tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp cornstarch

*Sautee peppers and onions in PAM spray until just about soft.
*Spray more PAM if needed.*Add chicken and cook until warm.
*Meanwhile, in a little bowl, mix everything together.
*Add sauce to chicken and cook until a consistency you desire (I like mine thick).
*Serve with 1 carb (I chose 1/2 cup brown rice).

I made this for my SO with real chicken and he loved it although he said it needed way more red pepper flakes!!! My nose was running with what I had.

Mix in one bowl:
1/4cup brownie mix (Mine is a basic Walmart brand)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1tbsp apple sauce
1tbsp water
1 pkt splenda
2tsp ff milk

Blend in another:
1tbsp ff cream cheese
1tbsp pumpkin mix
tiniest hint of nutmeg/cinnamon

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a personal pan with PAM.
*Put brownie mix in the pan and then swirl in the creamcheese mixture.
*Bake for 30-37 minutes.

I baked mine for 30 and it was still gooey (how I like it). This doesn't have as much protein as NS requires but still healthy, easy, and yummy!
Makes 1 dessert.
