What's for Dinner? -- Sweet N' Sour Chicken Recipe. Don't miss this one! Quick n' Easy.


Sweet and sour chicken is one of my favorite childhood meals. My Dad, who is a retired Firefighter, would make this often in our house, growing up. It is pretty quick to make and delicious. One of my favorites, to this day.  I have modified my Dad's recipe a little to suite the taste buds of Hubby and I, but it is packed with flavors and a bit that makes us come back for more!
