Another Family Favorite: Sweet & Sour Chicken

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

Years ago I visited my aunt who made the best meal – Sweet and Sour Chicken.  I asked her for the recipe and it has become one of our family favorites.  It doesn’t take a whole lot of preparation and the end result is totally worth it. Easy & delicious main dish- Sweet & Sour Chicken
This is another meal that hits the spot on a cold, windy day.  Mmmmm…. and it smells absolutely delicious.  My oldest is a very picky eater- he sort of inspects everything before he will take a bite.  This is one of the guaranteed meals he will eat.

    Made this tonight and it was delicious. I used 4 smallish breasts and I felt like I could have used more chicken for the amount of sauce.

    So I made sweet & sour chicken, smelt tremendous as baking. When I tried it I thought wow spicy. Is that from werschtishire sauce?

  3. says

    Do you use 2 c pineapple juice or the reserve from the can of pineapple chunks? The recipe calls for 2 c, but directions states the reserve. I made the recipe using 2 cans reserve as it was dry with one can & it turned out but I’m making again so I wanted to ask :D

    I could “smell” this cooking as I looked at the photo and read the instruction:)

    I too send my sympathy on the loss of your precious father.
