Anyone have the old Sweet 'n Sour Glazed Chicken Recipe???

2 posts in this topic

Hello all, I used to cook the Jenny Craig recipe called "Sweet 'n Sour Glazed Chicken." I had the recipe for 2 years and recently lost my recipe book. I tried doing some research, but the only recipe I can find is called "Sweet & Sour Chicken" and it is not the same one at all. The recipe I'm looking for calls for diced chicken, diced pineapples, ketchup, vinegar, ginger, soy sauce, cornstarch, brown sugar, etc. I can't remember all of the ingredients and I do not have the instructions. Does anyone have this recipe?? Thanks!!

Hi Laureen17,

See recipe below.

This is not the Jenny Craig recipe but I believe it is very similar to what you are looking for. It is from the recipes at www.sparkspeople.com. Hope it helps.

      Why have two rather flavorless street tacos when you can have four stuffed tacos and get your veggies in also?
      I sautéed Trader Joe's frozen fire roasted peppers & onions with the JC taco filling to which I added some cayenne & ground cumin (I like spicy). While that was cooking I sliced up a green onion and fresh cilantro and cooked the four tortillas on my grill pan. I assembled the four tortillas with broccoli slaw, then the taco mixture, followed by cilantro & green onion. I topped all that with a little fresh lime juice and wow is it good!

      I didn't have any spinach and really wanted the chicken fettuccine (my JC version of comfort food) so today I added chopped garlic (good for my cold), mushrooms and chopped tomatoes.  It was so DELICIOUS!!  I will definitely make this again and again and again.......
      I heated the fettuccine in the microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, while that was cooking I salted the garlic, mushrooms and tomatoes.  Added the fettuccine and sauted until bubbly.

      I just devoured my delicious lunch of JC Kung Pao Beef to which I added a serving of steamed cauliflower rice. I mixed it all up and topped it off with a little sriracha sauce. It was delicious and very filling.  
      I'm interested in how YOU volumize the Kung Pao Beef entree.

      Today for lunch I enjoyed the Classic Cheeseburger. I wanted to volumize with lettuce, a slice of heirloom tomato, pickle slices, onion, etc. but did not have any tomatoes besides tiny grape tomatoes. SO instead I sautéed some yellow onion slices and sliced white mushrooms. I sweated them down and then added a little garlic powder and black pepper. I piled that all on my burger and it was amazing. Super good! I can't wait to order another burger next week!
      I really am enjoying the food. I think JC has improved the food to go along with the higher prices!
      I'm very thankful I have kept up my Premier member "dues" of either $39 or $49 a year (its been so long I don't remember) that 30% discount sure does help!

      Hi all,
      I'm looking for suggestions on what to use to volumize the Lemon Garlic Shrimp. So far all I've come up is with some sautéed zucchini. In the fridge I have zucchini, mushrooms, green beans, broccoli, chopped kale, spinach, carrots, celery, sugar snap peas and riced cauliflower (and of course onion).
      I'm curious to hear what other people have done.
      Thanks for your input.

      I miss the sauce that used to come with the sunshine sandwich. Does anyone have a similar recipe? I used taco sauce and didn't like it. I want it like the original and I can figure out what was in it. Thanks
