Delicious Baked Oriental Sweet and Sour Chicken and Peppers


Sweet and Sour dishes are sometimes made in a WOK. For this recipe the sweet and sour sauce is made separately as a sauce, then poured over the chicken and peppers in a glass baking dish. It is then baked for 30 minutes. In this recipe I used bell peppers and yellow banana peppers from the garden but you could use any kind of sweet peppers.
If you like sweet sour and hot you might add some Jalapeno or Habanera peppers to the dish. I have not tried this with sliced onions but I am sure this would also change the flavor a little bit. Another flavor enhancer you could use is grated Parmesan or other hard cheese. They could be mixed with some buttered bread crumbs and sprinkled over the top before baking. Part of the fun of being a home chef is making variations that put your own stamp on a recipe.
