Chinese Sweet and Sour Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 38
Make Chinese sweet and sour chicken with a sweet marinade that is so easy to make! I use this recipe whenever we bring dinner to another couple's house. I marinate it at home, then just cook it there. It's great with white rice.

Sheet Pan Sweet and Sour Chicken

Rating: 5 stars 16
Inspired by the flavors of our favorite Asian takeout, here's a sweet and sour chicken recipe that uses canned pineapple tidbits, with the usual veggies. In order to make it sheet-pan friendly, the chicken is not breaded or fried. Add as much of the delicious sauce as you like, and if there is any left, store the sauce in the fridge in a sealed container, for up to one week. It's also a great dipping sauce for Asian-style appetizers. Serve over hot steamed rice.

Sweet, tangy, and satisfying. The chicken is stir fried instead of battered and deep fried, and is served with a yummy sauce, bell pepper, carrots, onion, and pineapple over rice.
