Stuffed Onion - Sweet n' Sour Style
4 large yellow onions
3 tablespoons margarine
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger root or ground ginger
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup prepared sweet and sour sauce
1 cup cubed cooked chicken
3/4 cup drained, canned pineapple chunks
1/2 cup diced green pepper
4 mint sprigs
Remove top quarter from each onion. Hollow out center of each onion, leaving 1/4-inch outer shell. Reserve onion pieces for filling. Mix margarine, brown sugar and paprika. Place onion cups in baking pan; lightly coat each cup with margarine mixture. Cover and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
For onion filling, mince enough onion to get 1/2 cup. Cook minced onions and ginger in oil in sauté pan until transparent. Add sweet and sour sauce, chicken, pineapple and green pepper and heat. Fill onion shells with filling. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until heated. Then garnish with mint.
Makes 4 servings.
