Sweet & Sour Chicken

Chicken breasts
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
¼ tsp ginger
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 chicken bouillon cube
20 oz can pineapple tidbits
Chopped green & red pepper
1/8 cup flour
1/8 cup cornstarch

Drain pineapple juice & add enough water to equal 1 cup. Pour juice/water mixture into saucepan. Add flour & cornstarch. Mix well until smooth. Add bouillon cube. Dissolve cube. Add sugar, vinegar, ginger, and soy sauce. Boil for 2 minutes. If too thick, add a bit more water. Arrange chicken in baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken. Bake for 30 min at 325º. Add desired amount of pineapple tidbits and red & green pepper bits. Bake for anadditional 30 min. or until chicken is done.

Note: I chop up an entire red & green pepper for this. But I don’t use it all. The remainder stores well in a tightly sealed bowl in the freezer. Then you can use them again in this recipe or others.
