Sweet and Sour Chicken

This “take-out, fake-out” dinner is on the table in less time than it would take you to order and pick-up delivery from your local Chinese restaurant.  And it’s so much better for you than take-out.

The sweet and sour flavors come from a mix of ketchup, cider vinegar, brown sugar and soy sauce.  Fresh ginger adds a ton of flavor, too.  I adored the addition of sweet pineapple with crisp red bell pepper.

The key to making Chinese food at home is to prep all your ingredients before you start cooking.  Because once you start the cooking, it goes quickly.

My favorite bite was a little green onion, a little pineapple and SAUCE.

So good.

You could totally serve this over a bed of rice but I went with a glass of wine on the side.

What is your favorite “take-out” order?
