  • I made the recipe just as it said, however, but I added two medium carrots to the mix and reduced the cherries to a 6oz bottle. It turned out perfect.

  • This was the BEST sweet and sour chicken I have ever had EVER!

  • I made this recipe (omitting the cherries) and put it over meatballs...amazing!

  • Hi! My son's girlfriend, Jenny, went online today for a Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe and chose this one. It is the best I've ever tasted/ further search needed! My son's name, by the way, is Robbie!

  • Perfect!!

  • This is by far my favorite Sweet and Sour chicken recipe. I omitted the cherries and added 2 sliced carrots with the green pepper and did not mince the onion. I also added 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper for just a little hot bite My mom wanted to know when I had left and got take out. I served mine with Pagoda Fried rice

  • I made this recipe last night and my family LOVED it!!
