This is a upgraded recipe that I played around with until all the ingredients complimented each other. My husband and I are very happy with the outcome.

Hi, you will have seen that the new Food on Friday ingredient is chicken. I noticed that you did this post on chicken which I think would be great linked in. We already have a collection of over 40 recipes which is wonderful. At the moment the Food on Friday edition with the most links is Beef with 73 – I get the feeling though that Chicken could become the new record holder!
Have a great day and thank you for following Carole's Chatter. It 's nice to have you along for my blogging journey.

Carole, once again I thank you for inviting me to share another recipe on your site; you're wonderful my dear and gracious to do so!!

You are most welcome, Sandra. I have never tried sweet and sour chicken - only really done sweet and sour pork.

Carole, we are avid sweet and sour folks here in Alaska and I quite often make it using seafood, venison, beef, moose, pork, poultry, etc. - it's crazy-good I must say ;)
