Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

We love Chinese food, me in particular as I was raised eating some pretty authentic dishes as my mom is from the Philippine Islands. This dish is great, easy, fast and most importantly, made at home. I love making dinners from scratch but sometimes, I cheat. This is a great dinner that everyone will certainly love. Awesome sauce (store bought) and the chicken is crispy and moist.


1 1/2 pound of chicken breast in bite sized peices
1 bottle of La Choy Sweat and Sour Sauce
1 green pepper
2 eggs
2-3 cups of flour
Add 2 eggs into the bite sized chicken peices.

Stir egg in and make sure all peices of chicken are drenched in the egg.

I let the chicken sit in the egg for about 10 minutes before I put into the flour.

Carefully add your chicken into VERY hot veggie oil.

While your first batch of chicken is cooking, cut up your green peppers and add into your wok. If you don't have a wok, just use a big pan. Put 1 teaspoon of oil with the green peppers to help with the cooking process.

Once you are done cooking all the chicken, it's time to put the dish together.

Add the cooked chicken into the wok/pan with the green peppers.

Drizzle over your La Choy Sweet and Sour sauce. Carefully toss or fold the ingredients together to make sure all of the chicken and green peppers are coated well. Serve with white rice.
