Leftovers Chinese Food

Remember how on NYE we had this enormous feast of way too much food? Well, there was stuff leftover. Lots of stuff. But not like, old gross cooked food (well there was, but I forgot* to refrigerate it and it all got trashed), just stuff we didn’t even make. I threw some of it together for last night’s back-of-the-fridge&freezer-delight dinner.

Semi-Homemade Sweet & Sour Chicken

frozen popcorn chicken (really more like mini-nuggets? idek, but it seemed like something Sym would eat) + sweet & sour dipping sauce (I know it’s DIPPING sauce but stirring food into sauce is the same as dipping, right? RIGHT.) + a partial red pepper + a jar of pineapple

While the chicken was in the oven, I threw the red pepper & pineapple in a pan with some olive oil, pepper and garlic.

Then I mixed in the chicken & sauce and served it over rice. This actually turned out better than I thought it would- I was worried the sauce would be too sticky and I didn’t have any onion- but tbh the weakest part was the pineapple. Fresh would have been better than jarred, but who has the time to chop up fresh pineapple these days? WHO HAS THE TIME?
