Johnsonville Apple Chicken Sausage Sweet and Sour Stir Fry (Foodie Friday #9)

Before I share the recipe for today I have to say Im super sad.  I made my own birthday cake yesterday, which took over 2 hours to make…and it tasted HORRIBLE.  This was the most complicated buttercream recipe I have seen in my life (meringue, sugar syrup, what!).  I did everything like the recipe said, including the 4 sticks of butter (yeah you read that right…4), and it tasted TERRIBLE.  I thought it was just me being dramatic but Joe took it to work today and there are only 3 slices gone.  Normally by this time if he brought something I made it would be all gone.  On the plus side the decorating came out just like I wanted it to.

Ok sad story done now on to good savory food.  I love this reciep because its really quick and can be thrown together in under 30 minutes.  It also has some leftovers so we can have it for lunch the next day.  Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) Johnsonville® Apple Chicken Sausage , sliced

  • 1/3 cup cold water

In a small bowl, combine water, cornstarch, soy sauce, sugar and reserved pineapple juice.

  1. The cake looks nice, even if it didn’t end up tasting good. I’ve certainly had my share of cooking disasters over the years too!
