Sweet & Sour Chicken

This was really good! It isn't PF Chang's quality, but I will definitely make this again. It was really easy and I thought it was good and ALL my kids ate it with very little complaining from Jake. That is a big deal!Sweet & Sour Chicken
From: Sun Bird seasoning packet

1 1/2 lbs. chicken, cut in strips
1/4 c cornstarch, 1 3/4 c water; divided, 2 T Soy sauce
2 T. oil
1 green bell pepper, 1 onion; cubed, 2 carrots; diagonally sliced
1/3 c sugar
1/4 c catsup
1 can (8 oz) pineapple chunks, drained
3 cups cooked rice

1. Combine cornstarch, 1/4 cup water and soy sauces; add chicken. Marinate 5 minutes, coating chicken with mixture
2. In large skillet or wok, heat oil. Remove chicken from marinade with slotted spoon and stir-fry until browned; remove from pan.
3. Stir fry vegetables ( I used broccoli instead of green peppers and I LOVED it.) Return chicken to pan.
4. Combine seasoning packet, sugar, catsup, and 1 1/2 cups water; blend well. Add to chicken mixture and simmer 5 minutes or until thickened.
5. Add pineapple chinks and heat. Serve over rice. Makes 6 servings, 1 cup each
