I have always wanted to make good chinese food at home. I have been an absolute failure until I tried this recipe. This was easy and turned out great. Sweet and sour chicken is one of the things hubby gets when we go out for chinese and he thought it was great. The little monkey picked out all her pineapple first, but then finished off the rest. All in all this is definitely a “keeper” sweet and sour chicken recipe.
