Sweet and Sour Pork - a delicious dinner recipe filled with chicken, pepper and pineapple chunks!

I told you guys I would have some more Chinese dishes for you in the coming weeks that lead up to the Chinese New Year. I’m telling you, I could eat Chinese food every meal of the day. It’s my FAVORITE!! Too bad the hubby isn’t a huge fan and I don’t get it as often as I’d like. 🙁

This next dish is one my family makes a ton when we have Chinese on the menu. It’s pretty easy to make and is perfect for your next Asian meal. I think you will love this Sweet and Sour Pork recipe.

Here is how you can make this yummy dish too:
