Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken

I have a soft spot for Chinese. Unfortunately my husband does not share that soft spot. I've been craving Chinese for a while and I haven't been able to con anyone into going and eating with me.

So my plan attack goes something like this. Find a recipe online, attempt new recipe, don't tell husband it's anything to do with Chinese and see how it goes.

It went great!! He was a little skeptical when he looked at it. I forced him to try it because at this point he figured out it was Chinese. He tried and it and even liked it! I was a happy camper as after a while there is so only so many meat and potato dishes you can come up with.

This recipe does take a little bit of time so be aware of that! It's perfect served with Fried Rice!

My husband is the Chinese lover in our home, but this pregnancy has brought it out in me too. I will be trying this.
