Sweet & Sour Chicken

Sweet & Sour Chicken

Check out the latest recipe from Ness’s blog, Mums in the Kitchen!

I found this recipe in the latest Coles Baby & Toddler Club Magazine and knew it would be perfect packed with fresh vegetables from Charlie’s – and it was!  The whole family will love the sweetness of this dish, which is packed with goodness and flavour.  I kept the calories down by having it without any added rice, but did sprinkle on some cashews for a bit of texture.  I made a few changes – using chicken instead of pork and omitting water chestnuts, but you could definitely make it to your own liking.  Give it a try!

400g chicken breast, thinly sliced

1 medium red onion, cut into think wedges

1/2 small pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into 2cm pieces

1/2 medium green capsicum, chopped

1/2 medium red capsicum, chopped

1 tbsp cornflour

1/4 cup white vinegar

1 tbsp soy sauce

1/3 cup tomato sauce

3/4 cup chicken stock

1/2 cup unsalted cashews

 

Method

Heat half the oil in a large saucepan or wok over high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 2 minutes or until browned all over. Remove from pan.

 

Heat remaining oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Cook onion and pineapple for 3 minutes or until starting to soften. Add capsicum. Cook for 3 minutes or until vegetables are just tender.
