Sweet and Sour Chicken - What To Do With Leftovers

I love dinners made from leftovers that totally change the original meal into something new.  Mum bought a cooked chicken on the weekend (on a related note, that will be the last time!) and we had it with veges and gravy.  But on Monday night we felt like something different, so we made the sweet and sour sauce from the Edmond's Cook Book, added a little ginger and chilli, stir fried some beans, capsicum, carrots, and the leftover chicken.  Lastly, some nice fat noodles went in.  Really simple, really delicious, and really good as leftovers for lunch the next day!

Edmond's Sweet and Sour Sauce

4T brown sugar
2T cornflour
4T white vinegar
1T soy sauce
1c water or liquid vegetables are cooked in

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat to boiling.  Reduce heat and an simmer until sauce is thick (2-3 mins).  Be careful as the sugar can make the sauce stick to the bottom of the pot.

Believe me, it looks so simple, but it's SO good.  I added a t of minced ginger, and a little minced chilli to warm it up a little.
