Sweet and Sour Chicken
Forget about the overly sweet and sticky version you may have tasted in a Chinese
restaurant--this dish takes an appealing idea and makes it genuinely great! It's a winner
for kids of all ages.

Serves 4 (1 cup)

16 ozs skinned and boned uncooked chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup coarsely chopped green bell pepper
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (8 oz) can pineapple tidbits, packed in fruit juice, undrained
2 tbsps Splenda Granular
1/8 tsp dried minced garlic
1/2 cup unsweetened orange juice
2 tbsps cornstarch

In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute chicken, carrots, green pepper, and onion for 6 to 8 minutes. Add tomato sauce, undrained pineapple, Splenda, and garlic. Mix well to combine. In a small bowl, combine orange juice and cornstarch. Stir orange juice mixture into chicken mixture. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring often.

HINT: Good over rice or toast or as is.

I call it my Pad Thai...not so much Chinese, but super yummy...

Cook one "stick" of rice noodles until it reaches your desired doneness (one stick is about 150-200 calories, or whatever portion size fits your needs)

Saute some chicken breast chunks in a very spare dribble of olive oil. Add a variety of veggies which have been cut into strips (carrots, pea pods, onion, bean sprouts, etc etc). Stir fry until softened but not mushy

Add about 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 tsp soy sauce and some chili flakes to taste
