Sweet and Sour Chicken

May 27

You can use store bought sweet and sour sauce or make your own, low calorie version. I’ve included my own favorite sweet and sour sauce recipe here, also. Spoon over rice and serve 6 to 8 hungry guests.

1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 to 21/2 lb cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions
1. Spray large skillet with cooking spray.
2. On medium heat, sauté onions, green peppers, and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.
3. Add chicken and sweet-n-sour sauce, continue cooking 3 to 5 minutes.

Sweet-N-Sour Sauce
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/3 low-sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp frozen pineapple juice concentrate
2 Tbsp chopped pimiento
1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ginger
1 Tbsp of stevia

Directions
Combine chicken broth and cornstarch in small pan and heat to boiling.
Stir until thickened.
Add remaining ingredients.
Cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes.

Health Benefits
Low in fat, sodium and cholesterol, chicken provides protein in a low calorie meal. Important for women’s fitness, because every meal should include a protein necessary for building muscles and providing that healthy glow to our skin, hair and nails.

  1. I have not tried this particular recipe but i have had something similar. The one i do has no chopped pimiento, sodium or chicken broth. Yeah it’s probably not as tasty as yours but i’m a big pineapple fan so for me as long as that’s in there – i’m happy!

    I will try your version this weekend and let you know how it goes – good looking blog btw!
