All 6 sisters love Chinese Food. Typical Chinese food is usually loaded with calories and fat, so I went searching for something Chinese that was a little more healthy. I came across this recipe from MyRecipes and knew I had to try it. Not only did we love it, but it will now be going on the meal rotation at our house!

All the goodness of chinese takeout, without leaving the house (or all the calories!).
Add onion to pan, saute 3 minutes or until softened. Add garlic- saute 30 seconds. stirring constantly. Add chicken, saute 3 minutes or until chicken begins to brown.
In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup water, soy sauce, corn starch, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes and stir with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Add water mixture to skillet, and bring to a boil. Add bell pepper and snow peas to top it off. Cook for 2 minutes or until veggies are start to become tender and sauce thickens. Sprinkle with nuts.4
Serve over brown rice.
Make sure that you only have 1/2 cup of rice to keep it under 500 calories *An egg roll is not included in this 500 calorie meal... although I really wish it were.
