Growing up in a small town means no Chinese food restaurant. So the first thing I did when I got my driver’s license was drive to the near-by town with my best friend to go to the Chinese buffet. It was the ultimate sign of freedom. (although we somehow managed to get lost driving home from Marshfield. To this day, I have no idea how we did that).
Now that I live in the “big city” getting Chinese food is less of a special event, but it still tastes just as delicious. Unfortunately, the deep fried dishes and heavy sauces take a toll on the waistband. This healthy version of Orange Chicken doesn’t sacrifice any of the taste and cuts down the calories. Instead of deep frying the chicken, the chicken is sauteed. Plus, the sauce is full of fresh ingredients and low-sodium soy sauce. Place this chicken and sauce over rice, and it makes a great meal. Matt and I aren’t big fans of rice so we opted out of the rice. Without rice, this meal is 5 Weight Watchers Plus Points.
