Trouble With Takeout

Instead of…General Tso's chicken (2 cups): 830 calories, 37 grams total fat, 7 grams saturated fat

Order…Szechuan chicken (2 cups): 500 calories, 21 grams total fat, 2 grams saturated fat

Our experts say…General Tso's chicken is about the most dangerous Chinese dish on the menu—dark meat battered and deep-fried, then cooked with vegetables in a sweet, spicy sauce. Szechuan chicken, made with leaner, white meat and sautéed with vegetables, is a far better choice.
