Sweet and Sour Chicken

I feel like all I ever post these days are recipes. I am trying my hardest to finish up projects that I have had a hard time finishing, and I am actually enjoying it. So until they are finished, here is another recipe. It is delicious, so you have nothing to worry about.

Leigh Anne over at Your Homebased Mom is amazing, and I would sing her praises all day long if I could. Her blog was actually the first crafty blog that I visited, and since then I have been hooked. She is full of great advice, recipes, and craft ideas.

This tasty Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe comes from Leigh Anne. I have always been a Sweet and Sour Chicken fan. I have had my share of sweet and sour chicken, and some are much better than others. This recipe makes one of the better Sweet and Sour dishes that I have had.

Head over to Your Homebased Mom and check out Leigh Anne's other amazing recipes and projects!

1/4 cup olive oil

1/8 cup cornstarch

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits (reserve juice)

1/2 cup pineapple juice (use reserved juice)

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 red bell pepper, sliced (I used green, because that is what I had on hand)
