Tuesday turned into sweet n sour chicken. It was so delicious. We had a lot of leftovers, and only needed half of the bell pepper and onion. ( I don't make this very often, but will need to make a mental note that it is cheap, quick, and easy, and likely freezes well) These will get used up on pizza on Sunday.
