Oddly enough, I really wasn't looking for anything in particular this time. On a
Sweet & Sour Chicken
salt and pepper
1 cup Wheat flour (instead of cornstarch)
2 eggs, beaten
Vegetable oil (instead of canola and I just put enough in the pan to use- didn't measure)
I cut my tenderloins up into chunks and seasoned with the salt and pepper. Dipped the pieces into egg then the flour and set aside on a plate. Once they were all done, I popped them in the oil, just letting them get a little browned on each side. I am a little scared of OVER-frying things so I probably don't let them in as long as a should. Anyway, as I took the chicken out of the pan I put them in baking dishes small enough to fit in our toaster oven (yay electric saving!). Then you pour the sauce over!!
3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp kethcup
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt
I ended up making closer to a double sauce recipe since I had mine split into 2 dishes. I also put the chicken and some sauce on a cookie sheet covered with foil for a few extra minutes on either side to get it a little crispier.
I cut up half a small avocado and some tomato which I cooked on the stove. I also used my rice cooker to make some yummy rice (should have been whole grain, but oh well!)
With leftovers I steamed some Mukamame, also a good, healthy choice.. just sayin!
Just a small hint and toot my own on how good this is... hubby came home from work, none the wiser of what I had made, said "It smells like chinese in here." Dearest hubby.. thats because I made it :)
Go make it.. seriously!!
