Sweet and Sour Stir-Fry Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

Super fast and easy recipe - perfect for those days when we've been running around from here to there with various activities and I want a good, quick meal on the table. I often toss in some frozen red pepper/green pepper/onion blend instead of the fresh red pepper as I always have it in the freezer and may or may not have fresh red pepper depending on the current price at the store. I serve it over rice that I pre-set in my rice cooker earlier in the day to be ready at the same time this dish is.

This was very good. I used a green pepper and added some onions and mushrooms. Will use this again for a quick week night meal. Would also be good with shrimp or pork.
