Submitted by: GVMEMOMENT

Introduction

Sweet and sour like taste with a nice hint of heat. This is a great throw together meal when your looking for something a little different. Carrots, onions, or even broccoli can be added or subbed to this dish easily. Sweet and sour like taste with a nice hint of heat.

    This was DELICIOUS! Easy to modify...I doubled everything and used boneless/skinless chicken thighs. No 5-Spice or Pinapple, Broccoli instead of and 2 dashes of Cinnamon. Used Lower Sodium Soy Sauce...it's all I had and it made 4

    I only put two tablespoons of five spice powder in it, and even that was too much. It was okay but I don't think I'll make it again. - 2/10/08
