Get out your chopsticks! Here’s a Weight Watchers recipe I adapted: General Tso’s Chicken. I took out the rice from the original recipe, and added broccoli to the chicken instead. It has just 6 WW PointsPlus per serving! It tastes just like a Chinese restaurant meal but it’s perfect for eating light.
