This is by far the best sweet and sour chicken recipe I have ever made! I found this recipe on the website browneyedbaker.com and wanted to give it a try. I loved how tender the chicken was and how absolutely delicous the sauce turned out. The sauce on the chicken thickens as it cooks in the oven and oh my I still can’t stop thinking about how delicous it was!
This is seriously an amazing Sweet and Sour Chicken. My husband made the comment that we no longer need to go out to eat chinese food because this was so good, but I did remind him that it is nice once in awhile to have someone else do the cooking and cleaning!
