Sweet and Sour Chicken

Who said all Chinese food has to be full of Grease and fried!!! Sometimes I just get a craving for Asian food and their flavors but none of it is really that great for you with everything they cook it in. I decided I could make a healthier version of one of my favorites- Sweet and Sour Chicken! Same great flavors with about 1/4 the fat! And I did not fry the chicken in a batter I just simply sauteed it.

Then add your peppers and cook for another 5 minutes. I like mine to have a little crisp still but you can cook them longer if you want them to be completely soft.
