Sweet and Sour Chicken


  • 1 box Chicken Helper™ sweet & sour chicken
  • 2 cups water for rice
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1/2 large green bell pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water for sauce
  • 1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks, drained


  1. Pour rice (from Chicken Helper box) into 2-quart saucepan. Add 2 cups water. Heat just to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 20 minutes, without stirring, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, cut chicken into 1-inch pieces; pat dry if necessary. Place chicken in medium bowl. Add seasoned coating (from Chicken Helper box); toss to coat.
  3. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell peppers; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet. In same skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Carefully add chicken; cook about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until deep golden brown on all sides.
  4. Carefully pour 1 1/4 cups hot water into skillet with chicken; stir in sauce mix (from Chicken Helper box). Return vegetables to skillet. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens and chicken is no longer pink in center. Stir in pineapple; heat until hot. Serve over rice.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field. Terrific blog!|
