I love sweet and sour recipes; they give you so many levels of flavor. This recipe is for sweet and sour chicken, and can be ready in 2.5 hours. If you would rather do this in your slow cooker, set it to low for about 7 hours, and you will have yummy chicken. I think it is a must that it be served over a nice warm pile of long-grained white rice. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
