Why order take-out when you could enjoy this sweet and spicy garlic infused sauce mimicking General Tso’s Chicken.
On my weight loss journey, I found myself wanting healthier versions of some of my favorite Chinese takeout dishes. Traditional General Tso’s Chicken is breaded and fried chicken thighs covered in sweet and spicy sauce which is loaded with calories. I found, by making just a few simple switches I could satisfy the craving without all of those added calories. Another one of my favorite things when recreating recipes is adding vegetables. These Veggies add bulk to my meal and also have the added benefit of the micronutrients. I love making this recipe instead of ordering the calorie-packed takeout version. Marinating the chicken with the egg white is the key to getting the right texture. You cook the chicken without frying it or adding extra calories from breading and still get some crunch. I hope that you enjoy my take on General Tso’s Chicken and Vegetables with fewer calories on this classic Chinese take-out dish.
