      Very good! I made a small change to the preparation of the chicken - I prepared a pan with nonstick cooking spray and then rolled the cubes of chicken in a little bit of cornstarch seasoned with pepper (no salt) and then followed the recipe from there. It smelled wonderful too! Thanks for sharing!

      I made your dish tonight for dinner. My 5 year old asked for sweet n' sour chicken. I found your site on the web, plus I had all of the ingredients on hand. Instead of putting the chicken in the sauce, I dipped my chicken in a prepared pancake batter and deep fried it. I also added about 2T more of brown sugar to sweetened a little more. My daughter loved it and so did I. Thanks! Looking forward to trying some more recipes.
