Mom’s Sweet & Sour Chicken

This is probably one of my favorite recipes from my mom. It’s defiantly the hubby’s favorite! I love to take this to new moms right after they have their babies. The sauce isn’t too sweet or too spicy. I keep everything separate in case she doesn’t want sauce all over her rice. And I also bring a vegetable. Usually not Brussels sprouts, though I love them. I am the only one in my family. I made Yoda try them this week and he gave them two thumbs down.

The secret ingredient for this super easy dinner…
I haven’t been able to find it in Arizona so far. So when I travel to California I pick up a bunch of cans.
Mom’s Sweet & Sour Chicken
Heat Oven to 350*. Place a couple tablespoons of butter in a glass baking pan and place in your preheated oven. After a couple of minutes add a couple of chicken breasts. Bake for 30 minutes. Pull out and pour two cans of Contadina Sweet and Sour sauce over the chicken. Put it back in the oven for another 30 minutes and you are done.
Serve over rice and add some vegetables.
Easy. Quick. And yummy.


  1. YUM!!! I didn't even know that sauce existed! Looks like a great fast meal for hectic nights. And the two thumbs down to Brussels sprouts... Haha!

  2. What stores & isle would you find this sauce in a CA grocery store?

    1. Every store is different. Sometimes near the sweet and sour sauces. Sometimes near canned tomatoes that are of the same brand.
