Lorie's Easy Sweet & Sour Chicken

This recipe is delicious and super easy! My kids all love it - and that says a lot. It does have to cook for an hour - so plan for that.

1/2 C. chopped onion
1/2 C. green bell pepper - chopped
1/2 C. carrots - sliced
1/4 C. butter
1/4 C. brown sugar
1/2 t. garlic powder
3/4 c. catsup
1 c. pineapple juice - reserved
2 T. vinegar (white, red wine or apple cider)
2 t. Soy Sauce
dash ground ginger
1 can pineapple chunks - juice drained & reserved
3 lbs chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 375*

Saute the onion, pepper and carrots in the butter until the onions are translucent. Add in the brown sugar, garlic powder, catsup, pineapple juice, vinegar, soy sauce and ginger. Bring to a boil. Add in the pineapple chunks and remove from heat.

Place chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish and pour the sauce over them. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45-60 minutes. Serve over rice.
