1. Sweet and Sour Chicken:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- In a large ovenproof dish, combine the passata, white wine vinegar, soy sauce, artificial sweetener, minced garlic, and ground ginger. Mix well to create the sweet and sour sauce.
- Season the chicken pieces with salt and black pepper and place them in the dish, coating them thoroughly with the sauce.
- Scatter the sliced bell peppers, onions, and pineapple chunks around the chicken.
- Lightly coat the top of the dish with cooking spray to help the chicken brown nicely in the oven.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, and the sauce is bubbling and slightly thickened.
- Serve the sweet and sour chicken hot, with a side of your choice, such as steamed brown rice or cauliflower rice.
2. Vegetable Fried Rice:
- In a large non-stick frying pan, heat a few sprays of cooking spray over medium-high heat.
- Add the chopped onions and minced garlic, sautéing until they become translucent.
- Push the onions and garlic to the side of the pan and pour in the beaten eggs. Stir them gently to scramble them.
- Add the mixed vegetables and continue to stir-fry for a few minutes until they start to soften.
- Stir in the cooked brown rice and cook for a few more minutes, ensuring it’s heated through.
- Drizzle the light soy sauce over the rice and veggies, stirring to combine and evenly distribute the flavor.
- Serve your vegetable fried rice hot as a side dish alongside your sweet and sour chicken.
