    This was really good. My husband does not like rice very well, so I just used some cooked pasta and it was still awsome! Thanks for posting a wonderful recipe!

    I was a little skeptical of this recipe given the ingredients but it was soooo good. It really does taste like a sweet and sour chinese dish. The only changes I made was to use orange jello and I cooked my chicken breasts whole and then after they were cooked I cut into strips. Next time I will add more veggies and double the sauce. And there there will be a next time and a next time and a next time!

Hi it's fun to be part of RecipeZaar! I work full time and in my spare time I like to experiment in the kitchen. I also enjoy small hikes, biking and the outdoors. I look forward to travelling to new destinations in the future. It is always nice to try different tastes from different restaurants. I enjoy trying to recreate some of the memorable meals I have shared with my husband. He is more than willing to attempt any of my kitchen creations. I am an avid cookbook collector and my husband teases that I could open my own library! I guess I am always seeking that "perfect recipe". I have found many great recipes here on Zaar and I think some of the greatest cooks are on this site!! I hope you enjoy the recipes that I share with you. Have fun! Decadent1
