My family loved this recipe. The recipe makes ample sauce which has a sweet and sour taste. We served the chicken over white rice and the sauce added flavor to the rice also. Try this recipe, it's a nice dish to serve to guests also.

I have been making this recipe since the 70's when Betty Crocker published it. It is a family favorite. I use boneless skinless chicken breasts cut up into pieces or I use chicken tenders. I also substitute red or yellow pepper for green. I use crushed pineapple if that is what I have on hand and sometimes if I make a large amount I use crushed and chunked pineapple together. I don't use bouillion cubes but I do use a tsp. of chicken base. Served over white or brown rice and you have homemade sweet and sour chicken good enough for company.

This is incredibly good! I made it with bonelss skinless breasts. My daughter loved it and made it at her sisters house a couple of nights later. We'll be making this often.
