Healthy Dinner Idea: Sweet n’ Sour Chicken (Real Food)

I love Chinese take out but it’s usually not very healthy. Finding take out recipes that you can make at home allows you to be in control of all the ingredients and make a healthier version of a favorite dish.

I’ve tried countless different recipes for Sweet n’ Sour Chicken but I was always disappointed in them until I found this recipe.

The recipe gives you the option of using honey or coconut sugar. I use the honey and love the flavors so I haven’t been willing to try it with coconut sugar.

Round out this great real food dish with some steamed broccoli or stir fry veggies and enjoy your homemade take out.
