Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

Guys, I struggle with emotional cravings. I want the foods I ate at highs in my life to make me feel that good of them. One of them for sure is junk chinese food. Not the real kind. The Americanized sugary fatty mess.

Usually I head out and grab some but I decided this time, I shouldn’t. Because I’d had Panda Express like 5 days ago. And it’s time to quit acting like my meal plan doesn’t matter. LOL.

So I made this up spur of the moment and it was LIT so I thought I’d share.

 

Ingredients –

  • chicken breast
  • whole grain rice
  • pineapples
  • bread crumbs
  • soy sauce
  • sweet n sour sauce
  • honey sesame sauce
  • olive oil

I knew I wanted the chicken to be breaded. I’m ok with breading as an occasional ‘healthy cheat’ and I count it towards my yellow containers (80 day obsession meal plan). But what I don’t have a lot of space for in my diet is fat. So I wasn’t going to fry it.

I took the chicken and seasoned it (heavy, like I was always taught LOL) and then dipped it in sweet n sour sauce and honey sesame sauce. Once it was all coated I put it in a ziplock bag with breadcrumbs and additional seasoning and shook it up.

I ‘fried’ in like a few drops of olive oil.

I also added some pineapples because they’re lit.

While all this was going on I had my rice in a rice cooker. It’s so worth it to have one.

I flipped each piece over to get it all evenly cooked. Once it was all done I served it on the rice and had a side of edamame. Oh, I added a little soy sauce to the rice and some sweet and sour sauce over the chicken.img_0605

 

Yum :). Because of all the sauces, I counted this meal as a 2x yellow, 1x blue, red, purple, and tsp.
