Wednesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken with Steamed Broccoli

This is one recipe that I have made when entertaining guests, and it is always a hit... so make extra!

Sweet n Sour Chicken


Here is what you need for the chicken marinade:

1/2 C. brown sugar
1 clove garlic
3/4 C. vinegar
1/4 C. Soy sauce
1/2 C. water
2 tbl. cornstarch

(Not pictured)

1 lb Chicken breasts ( I use boneless)
Broccoli (fresh is best)
Rice to serve 4

Step 1: Mix all ingredients and pour over chicken in 9 x 13 baking dish





Step 2: Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, turning halfway through.

Step 3: While chicken is cooking, steam broccoli and rice.

Step 4: Serve chicken and broccoli over rice. We like to pour extra sauce over the rice and broccoli too.

This is a great, filling meal that is very simple and frugal!
