Sweet & Sour Chicken

Look at this golden goodness - straight from the oven.

As I was making this recipe. I wanted to add all the yummy stuff that goes along with sweet and sour chicken like; bell peppers, red bell peppers, pineapple chunks. But, let me tell you - this is good just as is. Especially if you are in a hurry to get supper finished and out of the kitchen - like I was tonight.

The next time I make this dish, I will add all those other goodies. So, look for a new picture later on.

I served it with brown rice and my only change to the recipe was, that I added about a 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder to the chicken, before I put it in the oven.
