Sweet and Sour Chicken
Chinese food is a favorite treat for our family. I found this recipe and we have made it twice in two weeks. So it was definitely a hit with everyone.
2 lb boneless chicken breast
6 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 can (8 0z) pineapple chunks in juice
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 onions cut into 3/4 inch pieces
2 bell peppers cut into 3/4 inch pieces
Cut chicken into 3/4″ pieces and place in medium bowl. Add 4 Tbsp cornstarch, 1 Tbsp soy sauce and flour to the chicken. Mix well to coat the chicken. In a small bowl add the remaining cornstarch and soy. Also add ketchup, sugar, vinegar, and juice from pineapple. Whisk into mixture until well mixed. Add the oil to a hot wok preferably. If you don’t have a wok, use a large pan. Add the chicken and stir fry until the outside is nicely browned. Then place the chicken on a cookie sheet and add to a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Add the vegetables to the hot wok and stir fry until tender crisp. Now add the pineapple and sauce and stir fry until thickened. Remove from heat and add the chicken back to the pan and mix quickly and serve with white or fried rice.
