Needs pineapple Although I did like this dish, it wasn't wonderful. I followed the recipe closely. I like the way the veggies were cooked in the broth (I used green pepper, white onion, carrot and celery). I used Simply Fruit apricot spread, which is not as sweet. I may try it again with the pineapple and see if it works. Pros: Fresh foods, easy to prepare Cons: Lacks flavor,
I really liked it. I took the advice of adding pineapple as the very last ingredient and letting it warm up a bit. I used frozen stir-fry veggies from Costco. Everything was very good. Sweet and sour. Yum! Even my seven-year-old liked it (and that's pretty good)!
I used a can of pineapple, with the juice and fruit. Pineapple is what is generally in sweet and sour chicken anyway, gave the dish a lot more flavor than the apricot preserves. The flavor is still off like the previous commentor said. I think part of the problem is the use of rice vinegar. Generally I have always used something with a higher acidity, which I think is needed with the pineapples. Overall, this is a heathly version of one of my wife's favorite recipes. Everyone liked it and its quick.
This was easy and tasty, but I thought it could use more flavor. It was a little bit sweet but not at all sour. I will make it again but modify the seasoning amounts. Lori, Barkhamsted, CT
