A healthy version of Sweet and Sour Chicken. Chinese-American made with 4-ingredients! Delicious served over rice with a side of stir fry vegetables.
My pantry is currently stocked with Trader Joe’s seasonal goodies! One of my favorites is their Red Pepper Jelly. At a recent holiday Christmas party, I brought a cheese plate and we were all commenting how yummy this jelly was and that it tastes a bit like sweet and sour sauce. I bought a few jars to stock up. I love this stuff! It is just that good! The next night I mixed it with Soy Sauce and simmered it with chicken for dinner. A fabulous healthy sweet and sour chicken recipe was born.
- 4 thin chicken breasts
- 12 oz. of red pepper jelly (seasonal at Trader Joe's is what I used)
- ¾ cup of soy sauce
- On low heat over a stove top combine red pepper jelly and soy sauce. Mix until heated and combined.
- Add chicken, cover and simmer on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, flip and sautee another 3-5 minutes or until cooked. Cooking time for chicken may vary depending on thickness of your meat.
