Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-Fry



Lip smacking Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-Fry (with crunchy veggies) is a delicious, quick dinner for those busy days - you can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes - start to finish

I have mentioned a few times previously that I love stir-fry recipes.  They are quick, easy, the meat cooks the way you want it to and the vegetables are crunchy as is with this Sweet And Sour Chicken Stir-Fry .

Maybe it's just me, but I like my stir-fries to have a definite crunch to the vegetables.  I really would not like to eat over cooked, mushy vegetables this way or in most cases I should say.

To be honest, I have over stir-fried vegetables before and on the odd occasion I still manage to do that ! The big secret , is not really that big, constant (but gentle) stirring is required with any stir-fry

Anyhow, broccoli and me, we have a great understanding - fresh broccoli is super to cook with, adds color and most important it contains loads of goodness !

I use store-bought Sauce when making this dish, which usually is a week night dinner and perfect for busy cooks. Over weekends I do not mind making a sauce from scratch, but during the week, I am a little less picky.
