LO-CARB TERYAKI SAUCE
=====================

1/4 c. Soy sauce
1/4 c. rice wine vinegar
2 T.   sugar substitue (Splenda, et. al.)
1 T.   no-carb thickener (Thicken/Thin NOTSugar)
2      garlic cloves, minced
1 t.   ground ginger
1/2 t. red pepper flakes
dash   sesame oil (or sesame seeds)


LO-CARB GENERAL TSO'S CHICKEN
=============================

1 1/2 lb.  chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
3/4 c.     soy flour
2          eggs
1/4 c.     soy sauce
           oil for frying

Mix flour, eggs, and soy sauce.  Coat chicken pieces in 
batter and fry in batches.  Set aside.

3/4 c.     chicken broth
1/4 c.     rice wine vinegar
1/4 c.     soy sauce
1/4 c.     water
1/4 c.     sugar substitue (Splenda, et. al.)
2 T.       no-carb thickener (Thicken/Thin NOTSugar)
2 T.       no-carb thickener (Thicken/Thin NOTStarch)
2 T.       sesame oil

Mix all and keep in refrigerator until cooking time.

1 c.       chopped scallions
12-16      pickled hot peppers, rinsed and dried
           fried chicken pieces from above
           sauce mixture from above
2-4 T.     peanut oil

Heat oil in wok over high heat.  Add peppers (carefully!)
 and cook 1 minute.  Add chicken and scallions, cook 2 
minutes, stirring constantly.  Add sauce mixture, cook 
until sauce reduces, stirring constantly.

This dish is normally served with rice, but on a low-carb 
diet, consider using steamed or stir-fried veggies as the 
side.  Regardless, the side should be bland enough to take 
away some of the heat of the chicken.
