Sweet and Sour Chicken*

Wow this one had great taste! Easy to fix and healthy!! I used about half of the soy sauce that the recipe calls for because I was afraid that it would be too salty and it was GREAT! Hubby thinks it needs a little more sauce on it but I LOVED it the way it was! One of these times I will remember to take pictures as I go! LOL
