Pineapple Sweet & Sour Chicken

When we go to a chinese restaurant I always get sweet & sour chicken. Usually I get it without the sweet and sour sauce, so really it's just chicken nuggets. I like the sauce but I also like just the chicken, I'm a weird person sometimes.  This recipe looked like it would be a win win because once I made the chicken Marley ate that for dinner and then I continued on with the recipe and that was dinner for Mike and I. I knew Marley wouldn't like it but it was nice to be able to not have to make two different things to accommodate her.

12 ounces frozen Popcorn Chicken
1 pkg (16 oz each) frozen bell pepper stir-fry vegetables (I couldn't find bell pepper ones)
2 cans (8 oz each) pineapple chunks in juice, drained, 1/4 cup juice reserved 
(I used one can and that was enough pineapple for me)
2/3 cup Sweet and Sour Sauce
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce

Cook chicken according to package directions. 

In a large skillet mix frozen veggies and pineapple juice. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and cook until veggies are tender. 

Add pineapples, sweet & sour sauce, and soy sauce into skillet. Stir and cook for a few more minutes until sauce thickens. 

Mix in hot chicken. 

 It was pretty good. It did taste a lot like pineapples so next time I might not use so much pineapple juice but otherwise it was delicious! 


  1. I like to have things separate too sometimes. Maybe as a dipping sauce? Sounds like a nice quick and easy dinner though. Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend.
