Sweet and Sour Chicken
Do you ever feel or find we are being told by companies and others that products taste so much better than making something homemade?!
With the pandemic and living rural – options and products are sparse. We are missing our variety in our meals and the fact by now we would have gone atleast once to the city where we would have enjoyed some amazing and delicious gluten free Chinese food.
My dear work mother recommended The LooneySpoons Collection Cookbook by Janet & Greta Podleski – and their recipes are all excellent.
I modified it as 1) we had no gluten free soya sauce – So used a splash of Worcestershire sauce and 2) they did it as a one pot meal. We like our things separate here. 3) onions have been hard to find in grocery stores and they have become gold in our house so I used half an onion and added a shallot
*Canadian Living magazine this month has the same recipe except they added cornstarch (to thicken it) and they used beef instead of chicken
1 Can Pineapple (whatever you have)
1 red pepper
1/2 onion – thinly sliced
1 shallot – thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic – minced
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Rice of your choice
In a large skillet, cook up chicken. Set aside. Once cooled dice up.
While chicken is cooking slice up veggies.
Mix up sauce. Set aside.
I had pineapple rings so cut them into tidbits.
Thinly sliced peppers.
Clean skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat. Add onion, shallot, garlic and peppers.
stir occasionally, for about 4 minutes.
Add chicken, pineapple and sauce.
Cook, cover and stir occasionally for 10 minutes.
I served over minute rice.
It was a family hit.
