Sweet Chicken & Veggies

Well, I made my own sweet and sour chicken recipe, but I just called it Sweet Chicken & Veggies. My husband like it so much there was a HUGE bowl and pan of it, and it is now in a tiny tupperware bowl as a leftover. I cannot believe how much he ate! I guess I did good!

The Menu:
Sweet Chicken & Veggies
Fried Rice

The Original Recipe:
This derived from a bunch of different recipes and I put them together.
