We have been on vacation at my parents house. And one of the WORST parts of vacation is all the eating out and junk that you eat. Even though we are staying at my parents house, we are always on the go, out and about, and so it’s easier to just grab something while you are out then cook tonight.
The other night however, we were able to get back to the house around 5:30, and knew just what to cook for dinner, instead of eating out. We picked Kraft Recipe Makers new Sweet & Sour Chicken (being my Mom’s favorite) that we had picked up earlier in the week at the store. You would think that it would be a long and hard meal to make, but from picking the veggies from the garden, to serving it at the table was less than 30 minutes!! You really can’t beat that…unless we were eating out again that is!
- Kraft Recipe Makers - Sweet & Sour
- 1½ cups thawed chicken breast - cubed
- 2 cups carrots - chopped
- 2 cups green beans
- 1 small onion - chopped
- 1 small green pepper - chopped
- 1 8 oz can Pineapple - drained
- 3 cups cooked rice
- Place cubed chicken into a saucepan with half the simmer sauce and cook thoroughly over medium heat
- Add vegetables into chicken, plus the other half of the simmer sauce, and cover with a lid to cook vegetables to a soft crunch. (~10 minutes)
- Drain pineapple and add to the pan with the finishing sauce.
- Heat for 1 minute, then serve over rice.
First we started the rice. We just made some minute rice to make it easy and quick. While it was simmering, we went out to my parents garden and picked some veggies! We ended up with Onions, Carrots, Green Beans, Green Peppers all from the garden. I’m sure this makes it ten times better….but would be great with store bought too! lol
Once all the veggies were picked, we started sauteing the chicken in half of the simmer sauce. While they were sauteing, we chopped up all the veggies for when the chicken was fully cooked thru.
After the chicken was cooked, I thru in the cut up veggies, and the rest of the simmer sauce, put on a lid, and let it all cook. About 10 minutes later, my veggies were cooked, but still had a little crunch to them still.
Next I added in 1 can of pineapple chunks and the finishing sauce, and let simmer for just a minute to warm them thru. That was it…seriously, how dang easy was that?!
There’s also a bunch of other fun Kraft Recipe Makers that you can get. Some for the crock pot and oven too. You can also check out the Kraft website for other ways to use the sauces! I can’t wait to try some of the others like the Three Cheese Chicken Florentine and Verde Chicken Enchiladas
