6 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons cornstarch, divided
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar

Recipe Directions for Skinny General Tso's Chicken

Mix chicken, garlic, ginger, vinegar and 1 tsp cornstarch in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate about 20 minutes. Whisk broth, soy sauce, sugar, pepper flakes and remaining 1 tsp cornstarch in a bowl until smooth. Coat a small skillet with cooking spray. Add oil and heat skillet over medium-high heat.
