When I saw that egg rolls were on sale, I thought I had to try out something to go with them! My kids are not huge Chinese fans, but I thought that with the sweet pineapple sauce, they probably will give it a try. I was hoping to find a recipe that used fresh pineapple (since it's on sale for $2.99!) but I'm betting a lot of you have some canned pineapple in your pantry from when it was FREE, and if not you can still use the coupon below!
Sweet & Sour Chicken (Serves 6)
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, juice reserved ($.50/1 Dole Coupon HERE)
1/4 cup soy sauce (B1G1 Free Kikkoman HERE)
