   I was going to have a wordless Wednesday today, but I changed my mind because I feel that I need to tell you about the AMAZING dinner I made tonight. :) (Thank you Pintrest) I was a little apprehensive because I feel like no one can beat a good Chinese Restaurant. The picture on the site looked so good that I just had to give it a try tho.  Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken with Fried Rice. I had told Mike earlier in the day what was for dinner and he replied, "so we will probably be going out to eat tonight?" (meaning its not going to turn out good) Well to HIS surprise, It was!!!
  • chicken breasts
  • salt & pepper
  • cornstarch
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • canola oil
So clean the chicken and rinse. Cut into cubes. Sprinkle a little s&p. Cover chicken in cornstarch. Then dip each piece of chicken into egg. Fry in oil on both sides in-till  light brown. Place into a lightly greased pan.
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tbs ketchup
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the chicken. 325 degrees for 1 hour. Its very important that you turn/mix the chicken every 15 min.
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 1/2 water
   Wash the rice really really well. (water should run clean) Bring water to a boil. Pour in rice. Turn stove on low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 min (do not open lid!) Turn off stove and cook for an additional 15 min (do not open lid!)
Fried Rice
  •  cooked rice
  • 3 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 cup peas and carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tsp garlic
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce 
Heat oil. Add peas, carrots, onion & garlic. ( I also added baby corn) Cook till soft. Move mixture to one side of the pan. Pour in eggs and scramble. Now add rice and soy sauce. Blend well. ( I would have added ham too but I didn't have any)
    Eat up!!!

    Mike was happily surprised  and so was I. This will definitely be made again. (of coarse my picture docent look as good as the one I saw)
