Low Calorie: Sweet and Sour Chinese Stir Fry

This low calorie sweet & sour, sesame chicken & broccoli stir fry recipe came to me from Minnie!  I love to open my inbox and find yummy sounding, low calories recipes from her and you guys do too!  Here is the message that accompanied her recipe:

*We just finished eating this tonight—it was absolutely fantastic!  We both decided we didn’t need to adjust one single thing in the entire recipe.  We had Spicy Cauliflower with Sesame Seeds & Ginger to go along with it and Super Healthy Sesame Wild Rice.  A few Green Beans left over from last night rounded it all out!  And we are looking forward to Strawberries (they were on sale this week) with Fat free Reddi-Wip for our dessert later on this evening.  Yummy!  ~Minnie
