Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I made this using chicken breast and since I am the only one in the family that likes capsicum I only used a little red and yellow and then added some finely sliced carrot and some broccolini florets and a small can of pineapple chunks and we really loved the sweet and sour sauce, thank you Deanna in Derby, made for Alphabet Soup Game.
