Sweet And Sour Chicken
 

Ingredients

  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1  tablespoon  bottled minced garlic
  • 1  teaspoon  bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
  • 1/4  teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2  pounds  skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3/4  cup  chopped onion
  • 1/2  cup  chopped celery
  • 1/2  cup  chopped red bell pepper
  • 1  (15 1/4-ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice, undrained
  • 1/3  cup  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2  tablespoons  dry sherry
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  cornstarch
  • 2  teaspoons  brown sugar
  • 1/4  cup  dry-roasted chopped cashews

Preparation

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add garlic, ginger, red pepper, and chicken to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until chicken is done.
Remove chicken mixture from pan; set aside.
Add onion, celery, and bell pepper to pan, and sauté 4 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Drain pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup juice.
Add 1 cup pineapple chunks to pan; cook 30 seconds.
Reserve remaining pineapple for another use.
Combine the reserved 1/2 cup juice, soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch, and sugar in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth.
Return chicken mixture to pan.
Stir in juice mixture; bring to boil.
Cook 1 minute. Sprinkle with cashews.

To save time, cut the chicken into pieces while you wait for the pan to heat. Serve over long-grain white rice.
there you go . I'm done !
haha . try it at home :)
 




as for now , I'm still confused about my studies !
I've been thinking a lot . And I can't even remember a few things now .
So , I guess I'll stick with Plan A; going for TESL in Unisel .
Or my-new-plan-not-so-okay; going for Cooking major .
wawawawa . I even laughed at myself .
Me , myself , cooking ?
That's embarrassing though .
I enjoyed cooking even I rarely cook .
When I was in the shower just now , I thought that I might go for cooking .
Then I told my parents and they're like " No . They have no future "
And I was . . kind of . . upset !
It's okay . I'll stick with plan A .
