Sweet & Sour Chicken

Recipes like this remind me of the many number of times I ordered Chinese food while at university. This particular recipe also reminds me of when I was an international student at Hope College and a friend of mine at that time and I would invite about 30 students or sometimes more to fit that little college apartment of ours and she has made sweet and sour chicken for all those people. After moving out of the States, I haven’t actually eaten a heck lot of chinese food, maybe the lack of chinese buffets over here is the biggest reason, so when I came across a recipe on Sweet and Sour chicken lots of memories flooded back and I had to make it for Mr.Husband too, who let me tell you loved it
