Savory Sweet & Sour Chicken

This is a dinnertime classic at our house!  One of my husband's all time favorites.  The combination of flavors is sure to make your mouth happy!

1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken, cut into bite size pieces
1 teaspoon chicken soup base or bouillon cube
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup carrot, peeled and cut into sticks that are about an inch long
1 can pineapple tidbits
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 medium green pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup onion, thinly sliced

Brown chicken in pan that has been sprayed with vegetable spray.  After chicken is browned add 1 cup water, soup base and salt, bring to a simmer.  Add carrots.  Drain pineapple, reserving juice.  Add pineapple juice, vinegar, and soy sauce.  In small bowl mix brown sugar and cornstarch.  Stir sugar and cornstarch mixture into chicken and sauce, stir till sauce thickens. Add drained pineapple, green pepper and onion.  Simmer 3-4 minutes till veggies are tender-crisp.  Serve over rice.
I like to serve broccoli with this but I cook it separately so I know it won't be too mushy.  I can't stand mushy broccoli!


Sweet and Sour Chicken is freezer friendly, remove from heat after sauce has thickened.  Add pineapple, green pepper and onion.  Allow to cool.  Label and date freezer bag, pour sweet and sour chicken into bag.
