Many thanks pinkbow. The receipe was a big hit. I doubled the receipe and used hoisin sauce and it worked out beautifully. My hubby was raving about it the whole meal. Thanks again.

Have you tried this??? General Tso's chicken is my FAVORITE chinese dish- I don't know how well this tastes like it, but I'd like to know if anyone's made it yet?

I'm not a big cook and this seems like a lot of work, but if the end result tastes simliar to take-out, I will TOTALLY try it!

I made Arizona-Girl Kathy's recipe, and it was quite tasty. The only thing is that the sesame seeds popped off the pan at me! ;D I think they might need to be cooked at a lower heat.

Here's a slightly different version, 5 points per serving according to the recipe calulator on the WW website. I was craving Chinese food, and just started throwing things together...

Almost "Fried" Rice (4 servings, 5 pts each)

1 C white or brown rice (points are the same)
2 C water
1 chicken bouillon cube and 1 vegetable bouillon cube
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup sweet red pepper, julienned
1/4 cup frozen green peas
1/4 cup shredded carrots
3/4 cup sliced celery
4 oz chicken breast, cooked, skinless (could use rotisserie chicken, I used a leftover piece of chicken I grilled), sliced into thin strips
1 oz deli style 97% fat-free thin-sliced smoked ham (4-5 slices), cut in thin strips
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbsp soy sauce (or to taste)

Cook rice in water w/bouillon added. Spray a non-stick skillet w/cooking spray. Sautee veggies, ham, and chicken until veggies are just crisp-tender (doesn't take long since the chicken and ham are already cooked). Add rice and stir to combine. Push rice mixture to the sides of the pan, leaving an opening in the center. Pour in the beaten egg and gently stir until it is scrambled. When it is almost completely cooked, stir to incorporate into the rice mixture, stirring until egg is completely done and everything is heated through. Season w/soy sauce to taste.

This was sooooooooo good, and for only 5 points a serving, what a bargain! I saved a container to take for my lunch tomorrow.
