Stir-Fry Sweet and Sour Chicken

Pin It

I love the color of this recipe. So many recipes add Ketchup and sugar for sweet and sour. Carrots & bell peppers are sweet, you don't need sugar. I try to cut any unnecessary sugar and white flour if I don't need to. 
This recipe is very simple and delicious! You can prepare it with in 15 minutes and 15 minutes to finish. I can call it 30 minutes meal.
                   2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut thin
                   3 tablespoons soy sauce
                   1 teaspoon salt
                   1 teaspoon paprika
                   1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 tablespoons Canola oil
3 medium carrots sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/4 pounds green beans
1/4 bounds broccoli
You can add scallions, bell peppers, add any veggie your family will love
4 garlic cloves, crushed
Cook noodles or brown rice, for serving (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 table spoon Hoisen sauce


In a large bowl, toss chicken with 1 tablespoon each soy sauce and cornstarch, salt, and pepper.

 Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook the chicken, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add your veggies, onions and garlic; cook over medium-high, stirring, about 4 minutes.

Whisk soy sauce sauce and hoisen sauce. Cook, stirring, until sauce has thickened and chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately over noodle or rice, if desired.
