“French” Sweet & Sour Chicken

11 09 2008

I’ve never been a huge fan of Asian food. It just doesn’t really appeal to me. I rarely order Chinese and I’ve never had Thai or Korean food. The one time I had Japanese I got my first (and only) migraine. Whenever anyone orders Sweet and Sour chicken, the smell just makes my stomach turn a little. I know it’s sad, but it’s true.

Based on this you may be wondering why I’m posting about Sweet & Sour Chicken. I don’t even know what attracted me to the recipe in the first place. I was clipping coupons (woo!) and saw the little recipe next to a coupon. I knew that WF would like it because he really loves Chinese food. He was pretty surprised when I added it to our menu list.

I still can’t really explain what drew me to it, but it was a success! I really enjoyed it, especially the pineapples.
