When you are craving Chinese food or stir fry, you need to try this lightened sweet and sour chicken stir fry recipe. This is easy to make and tastes similar to your favorite take out restaurant.
I absolutely love Chinese food. And I love trying to lighten up my favorite recipes, while keeping the flavors and textures the same.
This stir fry recipe is delicious and you could even change up the veggies that are in it. I personally love snow peas and carrots, but you don’t have to use those if you don’t want to.

As you know, I try to approach the blog as a balanced blog of all different types of recipes.
But I do realize that I post mostly dinner options than anything else. What types of foods do you want to see more of?
I have a bunch of side dishes coming in the next couple of weeks (one that Jeremy LOVED, which totally surprised me). But what else would you like to see?

- 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 cloves garlic minced
