Sweet & Sour Chicken
Wednesday, January 18, 2012
I had a hankering for Chinese food last week so I hit Spark Recipes in hopes I would find a recipe to satisfy my craving...and I did! I found "Angie's Sweet and Sour Chicken". I made it this past weekend and wow, it was g-g-g-r-r-e-a-t! It totally satisfied my craving for Chinese food, in fact, I think it was better taste-wise and calorie-wise than where I usually get my Chinese fare from. I will definitely make it again and it was fairly quick to throw together.
I did beef up the amount of veggies than what the recipe called for though. I added waterchestnuts (which I love!) and chunks of onion. I left out the green bellpeppers, but as you can see in the picture below, it needed some "green" in it, so next time I think I'll add broccoli. Oh, and I saved some calories by not having any white rice with this dish. I didn't miss the rice at all, but then again, I'm not a big rice eater.
I personally think it is very difficult to make food look good in pictures. I didn't spend much time trying to make this photo look appetizing because I had been out shopping all morning and I was starving because it was past by lunch time....and because it smelled SO good, I just wanted to dive right in!
I highly recommend "Angie's Sweet & Sour Chicken" on Spark Recipes.
