Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet n'sour chicken

I found this recipe on my search for camping recipes. We tossed it as a camping recipe – too many ingredients to take camping. But it’s a keeper at home. My kids seriously polished their plates and asked for more.

Big Points for Mom!

I love to see them eat good food even if it’s not the healthiest.

I’m still on the look out for a Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe for camping, but if I never find one I’m good with just eating this at home.  So if any of our readers has a great Sweet and Sour Chicken dutch oven recipe please share.

Now back to our new recipe. I cheated a little on this recipe – it’s not all from scratch. I know… shocker. I’m also busy mom and dinner sneaks up on me all the time so I used bottled Sweet and Sour Sauce. Forgive me – someday I’ll try making my own – but until then this works great for busy days.

  • chicken
  • cornstarch
  • eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
