Sweet & Sour Skillet Chicken

Sweet & Sour Skillet Chicken

I love recipes that come from my family. Many years ago my great grandmother compiled a book of recipes from all the ladies in our extended family. Some are a bit harder to follow than others. Our grandmothers just knew what to do, when to put it in, and didn’t write it down!! I have really enjoyed trying a number of the recipes and sharing my favorites with you!
