Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

When your family eats this, they'll never know how quick and easy it is.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. boneless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 - 2 tsp. grated or finely minced fresh ginger
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 small green pepper, seeded and cut in thin slices
  • 1 small red or yellow pepper, seeded and sliced thin
  • 1 (15 1/4 oz.) can pineapple tidbits, undrained
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 medium tomato, cut in 8 - 10 wedges
  • 3 green onions, chopped

Directions:

When making a stir-fry, it is a real good idea to have all the ingredients prepared and at hand in the order they are put in the skillet or wok. The food cooks fast, so you don't have time to stop and prepare any of the ingredients. I like to put things in bowl, if liquidy, or on sheet of wax paper or paper towel for every thing else.

Sprinkle the chicken cubes with sesame oil, ginger and garlic, and let this sit while you prepare the other ingredients.

Mix the vinegar and sugar in a small bowl and set aside. Mix the soy sauce and cornstarch until smooth; set aside.

Stir fry the chicken quickly over medium high heat until it is just barely starting to brown. Stir in the vinegar and sugar mixture, then the peppers, the pineapple and its juice. When it is starting to bubble, turn the heat to medium, and add the soy sauce/cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly. Simmer until the chicken is done, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, and cook for another 5 minutes. Serve with rice.

This is a good recipe Barb. I can tell just by reading it that I'm going to love it. Some of the Sweet and Sour recipes have us breading and deep-frying the meat prior to adding it to the sauce. This sounds a lot healthier and better.

Thank you for sharing with us.

Sweet and Sour Chicken is our favorite Chinese meal, so I'll have to try this very easy recipe. Not having to deep-fry breaded chicken first is going to really help save time too. Fewer calories as well.

Thank you for sharing your recipe.

This is one of our favs too. Saves a lot of time by not having to bread and deepfry the chicken first. Sounds good to me.

Thumbs Up.
