For months now I have been craving Panda Express, but have been either too poor or too lazy to go get it, but when I saw this on Pinterest I pinned it vowing to make it. Last week I did, and it was SO GOOD!!!!!! I ate myself sick because I just couldn't stop. I will tell you that I cooked for 2 1/2 hours, but maybe that was because it was my first time using these recipes. Even so it wasn't difficult cooking, there's just a process you have to go through. However, it was well worth it. I'm excited to make it again! So if you're looking for a great recipe, that also reheats really well, this is it!
I found the Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe on Made it. Ate it. Loved it.
Sweet and Sour Chicken
adapted from: Mels Kitchen Cafe
3-5 chicken breast
salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cups sugar
4 Tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup white distilled vinegar1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
And I found the recipe for the Fried Rice (which Tad raved about) on Life As A Lofthouse
1/4 cup soy sauce
On medium high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the peas/carrots mix, onion and garlic. Stir fry until tender. Lower the heat to medium low and push the mixture off to one side, then pour your eggs on the other side of skillet and stir fry until scrambled. Now add the rice and soy sauce and blend all together well. Stir fry until thoroughly heated! **You could really play around with this rice too! Try adding some diced ham, or green onion :) Yum!
So get to the store if you need to and get home to make this quick!
