Sweet & Sour Chicken

Recipe from Little Birdie Secrets

Vegetables & fruit:
Green pepper
Onion
Pineapple Chunks


Light Batter:
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup water
1 egg slightly beaten


Mix all together.


Sauce:
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. sugar
juice from one 20 oz can of pineapple (save pineapple for garnishing the dish later)
1/4 cup vinegar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
3 Tbsp. ketchup



Make your sauce first and keep it warm. Mix everything in a saucepan on low heat. Stir until thickened. You can add red food coloring if you want it to be more red.

Next, cut your chicken into pieces and dip in light batter. Fry until golden brown.

While frying your chicken you may want to saute cut pieces of bell pepper and onions. You don't want them to be too soft. Just a little softened, but still crispy. Mix the fried chicken, pepper, and onion and sweet and sour sauce until the chicken is evenly coated. Serve hot with rice.
This recipe is simply AMAZING! You have to try this. We also like to serve it with our Ham Fried Rice and Fried Egg Rolls.
