Sweet & Sour Chicken

The first time I ever had this was when I was dating my husband.  His mom, Diane, made this and I loved it.  I was raised on a meat and potatoes kind of diet and this was the first time I had really had a rice type dinner.  I fell in love.  Diane gave this recipe when Rob and I got married.  The first time I made this I about died.  Who puts ketchup and mustard on chicken?  Since then, I have made this more times than I can count.  This is also a favorite with my married children.  They all make this for their families.  Enjoy!

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice (I have also used orange or even soda pop)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (can also use garlic powder)
  • 1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  1. Place chicken breasts in bottom of crock pot.  Mix all the other ingredients together with a whisk.  Pour on top of chicken.  Cook for about 4-6 hours.  You may also make this in a 9X13″ pan.  Cover and bake 325* for 2 hour or microwave covered for 1/2 hour.  

  2. You may also thicken sauce with a little cornstarch and serve over meat and rice.  🙂
