Sweet 'N Sour Chicken (Not)

Yesterday I received my first order from Dixie and decided to try the Sweet
'N Sour Chicken (Not) recipe that came with the order. It was delicious!
Thought that I'd pass along the recipe because I know a lot of the folks on
the list use Dixie's Chicken (Not). I cut the recipe in half and it still
made a huge amount of food. Two of us ate huge servings and there was
enough left for a snack today.

A lot of the recipes that came with the order call for Dixie's Creme It.
Looks like I'll be ordering that next time. The Sweet 'N Sour called for 2
tablespoons of Creme It in the sauce, but the sauce was terrific without it.

Hope you enjoy the recipe!


Sweet 'N Sour Chicken (Not)
Serves 5-6

2 cups Chicken (Not) strips
2 Tbsp. broth powder

2 Tbsp. light soy sauce
2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 can (20 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained (save 3/4 cup juice)

Mix Chicken (Not), broth powder, and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Zap,
covered, for 6 minutes or until strips are tender. Chop peppers and onion
into medium-sized chunks, place in a microwave-save bowl and zap, covered,
for 5 minutes.
