Sweet and Sour Chicken

  1. [​IMG] Anybody have a GREAT recipe?

    DH makes easy chicken and rice, he puts a can or two of chunk pineapple with its juice in while the chicken and rice cook. Its comfort food.

    I always think of Sweet and Sour chicken, though, while I'm eating it. So we're in the mood tomorrow for some Sweet and Sour Chicken. I have red and green peppers, celery and white onion all cut up, ready. I have a bag of rice. I have frozen chicken thighs. I have seasoned rice vinegar and catsup. I'm ready for a recipe.

    Thank you, in advance! [​IMG]

    I don't have a recipe for sweet and sour chicken but I have one for Far East chicken. It is really good. I will find the recipe if you are interested. It is a little spicy though.
     
  3. Far East Chicken sounds like a very good thing. Please post it! Thanks!

    Far East Chicken sounds like a very good thing. Please post it! Thanks!

    1 cup water
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1-3 crushed up dried sm hot chillies (red)

    I like to add green onion 2-3 inch pieces and regular onion in slices but this was not part of the recipe originally when given to me. I love Mongolian beef and this kind of reminds me of that except with chicken.

    Let simmer 10 min

    3-3 1/2lbs. chicken cut up and put chicken in a pan....I use a 9x13

    Pour you simmered sauce above over the chicken bake for 1 hour at 375 F, bast at twice with the juices.

    Serve with rice, vegies, and or salad.​
