General Tsao's Chicken

I got this recipe from the WW boards. You could use chicken breasts instead of thighs. I thought it was pretty good. It makes a great sauce. I just don't care for ginger much.

General Tsao’s Chicken

3/4 c. fat free chicken broth
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 dash garlic powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 1/2 TB cornstarch
2 medium scallions, chopped
2 TB Splenda
2 tsp olive oil
2 TB low-sodium soy sauce
1 TB rice vinegar
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs

In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, garlic powder, cornstarch, Splenda, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger; set aside. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, and chicken and cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes. Add reserved sauce and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Serve chicken and sauce over rice.
