Easy to make and tastes WONDERFUL. I made a few changes, only out of necessity. With changes or not, your family will love this dish. I used fresh pineapple instead of canned crushed. I added some water with a bit extra sugar since I didn't have the syrup from the canned pineapple. Also, I cut the pineapple into chunks. I prefer chunky pineapple in my sauce. Of course, I couldn't whisk the mixture, but stirring worked fine too. I had planned to take a photo to post, but my family devoured it before I could. Also, I didn't dice the green pepper. I cut it (and the celery) into julienne strips. The times are pretty much right on target. You can make this dinner in under 30 minutes and your family will think you worked really hard!!
Took a long time to make. I did not car for this.
This was spectacular! I used a red onion and instead of lemon juice I used apple cider vinegar...a little less than half a cup. I used red peppers instead of green peppers and we loved this! I served it with Jasmine rice.
I'm the first to comment on this dish and i must say it is to die for! All that i expected and more. All the flavors just pop out at you and its just so flavorful. The only thing i added to it that the recipe didn't have was some sesame seeds and i only used 1 bell pepper.
Best and easiest sweet and sour chicken I have tried on this site! I made a few changes out of neccesity, using a can of cubed pineapple with about half of the syrup and snow peas instead of the celery and gr. peppers. It was AWESOME! Tonight I will make again using the exact recipe!
This was soooo good. I am still salivating. Easy ingredients. I used fresh pineapple and mashed up with a potato masher. I might use a little less ketchup--maybe add AFTER everything else in the sauce.
This was really good and very easy to make. My boyfriend loved it! The ketchup freaked me out a little, so I didn't put the whole amount and I probably should have. Still came out yummy!
Just made this for dinner tonight. Everyone loved it. I substituted the small sweet red, yellow, and orange peppers instead of the green peppers. The girls like those better. Also used fresh squeezed Meyer lemons for the lemon juice. The girls said it was better than our local Chinese take out restaurants sweet and sour chicken (which they love). Will definitely make this again.
