I don't normally like sweet and sour chicken, but this was awesome. Very flavorful indeed. I added fresh ginger and I think that extra kick really did it for me.
I played around with ingredients since I'm on a paleo diet, and due to personal preferences. First, I omitted flour, obviously, so I didn't batter the chicken pieces. 2 fresh lemons gave me 1/2 cup lemon juice, but you might want a 3rd handy just in case. Instead of brown sugar, I used just under 1/3 cup of raw cane sugar plus a tiny bit of blackstrap molasses, maybe a teaspoon.
Next time I'll serve this as soon as I add the sauce (which had already been simmering by itself while I cooked the meat) because I don't want to overcook the green peppers.
