Favorite Recipe... Friday Blog Hop



THEME this week is Favorite Recipe. 


Last summer my hubby and I were going to try new recipes on Mondays which is his day off, we did it only a couple weeks but I did find my favorite recipe to make.  I think hubby and I will have to start this again.  


SWEET and SOUR CHICKEN BAKE



1/4 c. butter (scant)
1. c. chopped carrots
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. coarsely chopped green pepper (sometimes i use red, yellow, or orange peppers)
3/4 c. catsup
2 tbsp. vinegar
1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 c. pineapple chunks, drained
1 (3 lb.) chicken breast, cut up


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In medium skillet, heat butter until melted, add carrots, onion and green pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring.2. Stir in catsup, pineapple juice, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and ginger. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture boils. Remove from stove, add pineapple chunks.
3. Arrange chicken pieces in 9"x13"x2" baking pan. Pour sweet 'n sour sauce over all. Bake, covered about 45 minutes, uncover and bake about 30 minutes longer.

Make sure you cut the carrots small or they will not cook well.  Sometimes I also add more pineapple to make it sweeter.  My husband adds more red pepper to make his have more kick.  I also make white rice and then pour this on top of it!  SO YUMMY!!!  

Sorry I no picture to show you the yummy creation!  TRUST me... it might sound like a lot of steps but is very simple!
