Sweet & Sour Chicken
Cut 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts in to strips or chunks. Coat with flour (I use a ziplock bag and do the hippy hippy shake). Cook chicken in 1/4 cup oil until browned and totally cooked. (I also sprinkle with salt n peppa)
Sauce: In saucepan combine the liquid from 1 can pineapple, combined with enough water to make 1 1/4 cups liquid. 1 cup sugar, 4 T flour, 3/4 cup vinegar, 2 T Soy Sauce, 1/4 teaspoon ginger. Cook on medium until thick. Stirring often. I sometimes put green peppers and onions in the sauce also, but the kids don't like it so much.
Serve with rice and the drained pineapple.
Honey Pork Chops
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 boneless pork chops
4 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 325
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium , brown the pork chops about 4-6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking dish.
Mix the honey, water, soy sauce, onion, ginger, and pepper in a bowl. Pour over the pork chops.
Bake pork chops Approx 1 hour or until done :)
