I know ... that title is a bit grandiose. But I'm not kidding! This recipe was super easy-peasy!
As I am still recouping from the nastiest sinus infection ever to grace my crainum, I was low on time, energy and ideas for last night's meal. I needed a something fast and easy ... and something that took very small amounts of concentration to prepare.
Now for the backstory ... Prince Charming cooks chicken nuggets for our littles every Sunday night after Awana. It has become their favorite tradition ... and probably favorite meal ... of the week. Well, I usually buy the Perdue Whole Grain Chicken Nuggets (they are quite yummy), but our store was out when it was time to refill the freezer. So I grabbed two bags of their Simply Smart Lightly Breaded Chicken Chunks since that's all that was available. Hubby made them one Sunday night ... and they were scarfed down immediately! Super good! As I was sneaking a few from the pan (our boys are QUITE territorial of their Sunday Night Nuggets), I thought "there must be some recipe I can use these in."
Fast forward to last night...the proverbial light bulb came on (however dimly) -- "I can make sweet and sour chicken with those bad boys!"
I whipped out my Kindle and pulled up this recipe at the Made It. Ate It. Loved It. blog (SOOOO crazy good!). And promptly began winging it.
Dump bag of Simply Smart chunks into wok over medium heat. (No oil needed).
Pour sauce into wok with chicken. Stir until sauce thickens (about 5-6 minutes).
While sauce is thickening, dice up some bell pepper, carrots, onions ... whatever you'd like. I diced a half of a bell pepper and then made sticks out of a handful of baby carrots (what I had on hand).
Also, since the chunks are in various sizes, I used the end of my spatula to cut the chunks into small, bite-size pieces.
Once sauce is thick, toss in the bell peppers, carrots, etc. to warm them up. This only takes a few minutes. The sauce will be all thick and clinging to the chicken and veggies.
Serve over rice (I used Minute brown rice) and enjoy!! :)
