Sweet and Sour Chicken

Another recipe from Mrs. Mohr is being added to the list!  When we went over for a girl's dinner last week, she made this for us and it was a hit...Brandy Sue even went up for seconds (that's an accomplishment for anyone making dinner)!  I admit, I didn't think I was a fan of sweet and sour anything...I worked in a Chinese restaurant when I was in high school and I never liked the looks of any of the sweet and sour dishes.  I sure am glad I gave this a try though...its a great substitute to the calorie packed takeout version as she healthified this recipe right up.

She took this pic of the ingredients for me since she knew I would be blogging this and I wasn't there when she started the preparation...what good friends I have! :)

Here is what you will need:
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts  (chopped into cubes)
2 bell peppers, diced (any color you prefer)
2 cups of pineapple
2 containers La Choy sweet and sour sauce
steamed rice prepared with the box directions
1 onion diced (she didn't add this because we have a certain Christina who doesn't like onions)
salt and pepper to taste

Start by spraying your skillet with nonstick fat free Pam and adding the chicken to medium heat, seasoned with salt and pepper.  When the chicken is done, add the veggies and pineapple and saute together for 5 minutes while stirring sporadically. 

Add the sauce and simmer for 5-10 minutes so the flavors can meld.  Add 1 T of cornstarch mixed with a bit of water to thicken the sauce up. 

Serve over a bed of white rice and don't worry about going back for seconds like Brandy will devour this! 

P.S.  If I relayed any of this incorrectly, let me know, Michelle!! Thanks for another great meal :)
