This recipe was recommended to me. Personally I am not a sweet and sour person but this recipe changed my taste buds. I made a few changes and put it in my recipe book to make again.

This was a very colorful dish and the chicken was lovely! I served it over white rice. We really enjoyed all the different textures this had to offer but we did find it to be a touch too sweet. Next time I think I will cut back on the sugar a touch and maybe increase the soy sauce. A little more sour for the sweet. Wonderful Saturday night feast! Thanks for sharing it with us Marsha D.!
