Sweet n' sour chicken stir fry (healthy style)

Cindy Rice


Took some chicken breasts out of the freezer..wanted something different that was not to heavy in the stomach and little or no preservatives..I came up with this recipe..measurements given are approximate as I didn't measure a thing..is a recipe you can play with..would've put mushrooms in but my 10 yr old gates then and didn't much feel like listening to him complain about then( even though I let him pick them out..lol) directions are as close as I can remember.but they are pretty close to accurate.and if any one has a problem with digesting corn starch or flour.arrow root is easier to digest
