Classic Chicken Breasts Recipe: Sweet and Sour Chicken

Are you looking for a classic and easy chicken breast recipes then sweet and sour chicken is easiest of all. Sweet and sour chicken is kid’s favorite too. It got the delicious Chinese Flavors and the sweet and sour flavors that just can’t be ignored.

This recipe is simple and quick, and you only consume just one pan for this dish. You can serve this with rice side and just watch your kids finishing their food by their own. This quick and easy recipe can be made easily on any weekday night or even on weekends (choice is yours). You can exclude bell peppers and onions (if you have picky eater at home) but I suggest to keep them. In fact you can also add sugar snap peas to enhance the taste and sweetness better.
