The dinner I made last night deserves a post all for itself. So I'm giving it one. This stir fry is hands-down the best Asian food I've ever made.
Sweet & Sour Chicken Stir Fry
Cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bitesize chunks. Dip chicken in egg and then in mixture of salt, pepper and cornstarch. Pan fry in oil until crispy and golden brown. Place in a single layer in a baking dish.
Mix together sauce ingredients: 3/4 cup sugar, 3 tbsp ketchup, 1/2 cup cider vinegar, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp garlic powder. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 for 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, it's time to sautee the veggies. I used mushrooms, snow peas, cabbage, onion, and garlic.
On the side, I prepared a package of chow mein noodles. To give the noodles a bit more flavor, I made a peanut sauce with 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp rice vinegar.
My nose was in heaven with all of these delicious foods cooking in my kitchen!
Dozer's nose must have picked up the scent too, as he was really begging for a taste.
I heaped the noodles, veggies and chicken on my plate until it was overflowing. Then I sprinkled a few peanuts on top for an extra crunch, and dug in! It was delicious!
If you like Asian food, I definitely recommend that you try this!

What's your favorite Asian dish?
I can't choose just one! My favorite chinese food as a kid was beef & broccoli. Lately I've discovered a love for sushi, miso soup, and Vietnamese pho!
