Pillsbury: One-Dish Meals Cookbook: More Than 300 Recipes for Casseroles, Skillet Dishes and Slow-Cooker Meals I am linking this recipe to :www.girlichef.com,Tuesday Night Supper club,Tasty Tuesdays,Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays,and Whatcha Makin Wed.

I went to Best buy to get another Usb  cord they said what they have online is different from what they actually had in the store(Even though I had called that location a week before they said they have them) all that to say until I get another one I will have to find images so this one doesn't match.  I would recommend not using the pineapples in this recipe.  Unless you really like that extremely  tangy taste.(and this is coming from someone who use to put salt on her sour pickles!).  Using the nuggets did cut down on the time but I will
probably use chicken tenders  that I've fried and I prefer Kraft Sweet and Sour ( Or Lachoy's duck sauce
a little less tangy more orange flavored)

I love sweet and sour chicken, but stopped ordering it out because it's not the healthiest choice. Making it at home gives you much more control over that. Thanks for sharing!

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from. I am very pleased with vegetarian main dishes.We are not vegetarian or vegan just a busy Mama/college student trying to get my growing kids to eat more vegetables. I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
