Clean Sweet and Sour Chicken

Chinese food is traditionally a favorite in our house hold.  Everyone has their particular dish and orders the same thing every time!  I used to just worry about the MSG found in most of your chinese food but nowadays I don’t really trust what else they might be adding to my dish.  I’ve learned how to order really clean in a Chinese restaurant by always asking for sauces on the side and plain steamed chicken and vegetables.  I skip the white rice and opt for either quinoa or some cauliflower rice instead.  My family is another story.  Since they tend to order the real fattening and unhealthy stuff, I’ve decided to take a favorite recipe and clean it up for them.  The results were incredible and the family loved it.  Hope you enjoy it too!
