So I made dinner tonight.
I make dinner most nights!
Tonight was a new recipe though. It came from…PINTEREST! So I don’t just trawl there, I actually make things from there too.
The recipe, sweet and sour chicken, was very simple and easy to follow. Easy to execute too, albeit slightly fussy, a there are multiple steps in cooking the chicken. But really nothing difficult. The only adjustments I made were adding chopped red bell pepper and pineapple. Oh and I used some of the pineapple juice in the sauce too.
Here’s my shitty Instagram pic:
I served it with brown rice and snap peas and broccoli. The broccoli and snap peas I blanched for two minutes (then shocked in ice water) and then sauteed with a little light olive oil and garlic.
The chicken was UNBELIEVABLY tender. The flavors were really good too. The pineapple and pepper added some really nice deliciousness. The only complaint Mike had was that he would like the sauce to be a little thicker and that there be more of it.
PS, how do you feel about the word “chunks”. Not too good right?
