Sweet and Sour Chicken
I realized I haven’t posted a lot of recipes in a very long time. Well technically it’s only been a few months.
So I was in the mood for sweet and sour chicken. Except I didn’t want to go to the only decent chinese place here in town to order the food. Because well even with it being the best in town….it lacks a lot.
So why not makes something myself right??? And Even though my brother thought I was a lunatic for trying… I did make a sweet and sour Chicken casserole and I am happy to say…there were no left overs
What I used.
1 pound of chicken breast tenders cut into cubes
red, yellow and orange bell peppers
2 bags of boil in bag rice
A jar of Sweet and Sour Sauce that I got from Lidl
a couple of eggs
So I put the oil into the pan and let it heat up while I cut up the chicken and mixed the flour.
I put the flour and cornstarch in a bowl with seasonings. Then I beat a couple eggs in a separate bowl to do a egg wash.
As usual.. you put the chicken in the egg wash then the flour… After that. you put it in the hot oil and let it fry.
I put the sauce into a baking pan. So that I could transfer the chicken straight over once it got done cooking.
The thing I love about boil in bag rice is that I can put it in a bowl full of water stick in the microwave for ten minutes and its done. The picture of the rice below….After it got done in the microwave I drained the water into my strainer. to try to get all of the water out.
I put the bell peppers into the frying pan and after that started cooking, I put the rice in with it.
Once everything was done I put everything into the baking pan and mixed it together, Baked at 355 for about 15 minutes. Yumm
