sweet & sour chicken

recently, a reader emailed us to ask if we had a sweet and sour recipe. i couldn't believe that i hadn't posted this one yet! i found this in our hometown community cookbook, and i'd actually forgotten about it until i saw that email. this is super quick and easy, and when i made it the other night we were reminded why we used to love it so much. it's delish!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. corn starch
1 can pineapple tidbits
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 tbsp. soy sauce
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts--cubed and cooked

in a medium sauce pan, whisk together brown sugar and corn starch. when blended, add pineapple (with the juice), soy sauce, and vinegar. boil on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes. add chicken and serve. 

i served it over some homemade fried rice and with a bowl of egg drop soup. who needs a chinese restaurant when you can create your own?? ;)

Yum! This looks so good. I have a recipe like it... But it is for meatballs. I will have to try the chicken. Thanks!
