I am all about easy dinners when life gets busy. When my Busia (grandma) was sick, cooking was the last thing on my mind and when we would come home from the hospital, we just grabbed whatever we could find to eat or went out to eat. I am getting back on track by cooking healthy but still want to stick to easier meals.

I love sweet and sour chicken and so did my Busia. That is often what she ordered at her favorite Chinese restaurant. Now that she is gone, it is going to be hard to go back to that restaurant that we went to with her so many times. I am not a fan of the breaded version of sweet and sour chicken though.

I prefer to make mine at home with a homemade sweet and sour sauce, fresh carrots, bell peppers and pineapple. It is healthier this way and tastes a lot better. I decided to try out the one-pan dinner trend with this recipe and let me tell you, I will be making it again. It is so easy to just throw everything in the oven, later drizzling on the homemade sauce and dinner is ready in no time.

This dish is flavorful and awesome served over some rice or eaten as is. If you want to make is super speedy, use quick cooking brown rice or make your rice ahead of time like I do and freeze it in sandwich bags for super quick meals. All of the vegetables together taste so amazing with the sauce. I cannot wait to make this again!
