Yummy Sweet and Sour Chicken!!

It's easier to order Chinese takeout/delivered, but it's healthier to create your own take on some of your favorites. My favorite is Sweet n Sour Chicken. Below I'll give you a few easy steps to create this dinner.

Step 1

To make the sauce: bring to a boil 1/2c unsweetened pineapple juice, 1/2c lime juice, 1/2 tbsp. arrowroot, 1/2c ketchup, 1/2 vinegar, and 3/4c brown sugar. Boil until the sauce is thick and all the sugar has dissolved.

Step 2

Whatever chicken parts are your favorite, coat them with seasoned flour and fry on both sides in extra virgin olive oil.

Step 3

After your chicken is golden brown or somewhat brown put them in a shallow baking pan, add the sauce, and then bake for 30mins in 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Should look somewhat like this or better!
Step 4

Complete your sides. With my chicken,  I made noodles and watercress. To make noodles boil then stir fry(with 1tbsp olive oil) with vegetables of your choice.

 To prepare watercress...boil 1 cup of water, turn heat off, add watercress, stir and let sit for 5 minutes.(Optional: add a little salt and pepper to sides).



Step 5

Serve and enjoy.
