Almost Chinese Chicken

Only 25 Minutes - Prep to Serve ! Quick, delicious, sweet and sour dinner

This dish reminds me of Chinese food, but definitely lacks quite a bit to earn the full name of Chinese .. instead I present Almost Chinese Chicken !

It is slightly sweet and slightly sour - nothing overbearing. Instead the taste of the Chicken and the vegetables come through a lot stronger.

The Chicken is usually ready long before the rice is fully cooked, therefore if I am really pressed for time, I serve the Chicken over noodles.

Even the two minute type noodles are delicious with this Chicken. In that case, I open a couple packets of two minute noodles (keeping the spice sachet to make a sauce to pour over my dogs' dry dog food) and cook it up in, well, two minutes !  Either in the microwave or on the stove top.

What is especially great to use the noodles is that you know exactly how many packets to use, one packet per person. Or two packets for the really hungry lot !

The sauce does not need to cook for long, only a minute or two, before adding the Chicken back into the skillet. A quick warm through and the Chicken is ready to be served over rice or noodles.

Dinner on the table in 20 - 25 minutes tops ! Unless of course you are still waiting for the rice ..
