Sweet and Sour Chicken

 Remember when I made Sesame Chicken at home?  I thought I might not be able to do it again...but I have....  I have created another one of my favorite Chinese take-out dishes, at home!  :)  Yum!

Sweet and Sour Chicken:
Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/2 lb. Chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
Flour (with a dash of ginger)
1 c. Carrots, sliced
1 Bell Pepper, cut into 1" pieces
1 c. (or more) Pineapple Chunks
1/2 Celery, sliced (optional)
Rice (cooked as per directions)
Here's my trick or coating chicken.
 Once you have dredged your chicken in the flour, heat some oil in a skillet.  Then place the chicken in the preheated skillet and fry until the chicken is cooked through and golden.  Keep your eye on it, and stir gently and frequently.  Once it's done place on papertowels on a plate.
 In a clean skillet place 1 T. oil, pineapple, carrots and peppers.  Add about 1/2 c. water and cook until tender crisp.
 You can at this point either add the chicken and sauce to the skillet and stir, OR just serve it buffet style.  (Which is what I did...I love buffet style for some reason...)
 Layer rice, veggies, chicken, sauce and optionally crispy wonton strips. (see note below)  Also goes really well with my Chicken Pot Stickers.
For crispy wonton strips just use a pizza cutter (or knife) to cut the wonton wrappers into strips.  Then fry for a few seconds each.  Crispy and light little lovely bites!  :)
