Default Mock General Tso's Chicken

This is a simple and tasty version to the restaurant style. Warning there is brown sugar in the recipe. Feel free to substitute with an artificial sweetener of your choice. All measurements are approximate. Adjust to your own tastes

1 lb chicken cut into bite size pieces (I used cutlets they were on sale)
4 garlic cloves minced
2 TBS tomato sauce or NSA ketchup
2 TBS rice vinegar
1/4-1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1-2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (I like mine with a kick)
1 TBS ground ginger (I am not a big fan of ginger so adjust to your liking)
2 TBS brown sugar or 1 TBS and add hosein sauce (be careful with this as it is made from sugar and molasses)
Black pepper to taste

Spray your crock with coming spray if you like. Place chicken in bottom, sprinkle chicken with pepper. Add the remaining ingredients and cook on low 3-4 hours.

Mine was a little soupy. So I added 1 cup of red quinoa. Great, at least I thought so, on its own or serve over shredded cole slaw mix for a little crunch.

Believe me I am not expert on cooking, but I am learning to experiment to create healthier options to some of my old favorites.

This sounds great, thanks for posting it. I'm going to try it using tofu.
