Chicken Recipe – Sweet and Sour Chicken

sweet and sour chicken
A sweet and sour chicken recipe is always a perfect go to. I love both chicken and Oriental food, and when they are combined I’m one happy girl. I love a good chicken recipe, and have been working to perfect my version of this delicious recipe. Since this chicken recipe is a quick family favourite I new it was worth sharing both for it’s delicious outcome and the simplicity of it.
The ingredients are things that most, if not all kitchens already contain which make it easy peasy to whip up – chicken, salt & pepper, flour, ketchup, sugar and eggs are all basic staples. Soy sauce normally is too, even though I’m not too sure about rice vinegar. I had it on hand because we like to make sushi at home, a way you can make your own concoction is by mixing equal parts white vinegar and white wine. Don’t get carried away because you won’t need too much for this recipe, as always you can modify that if you wish depending on your taste.

Since this is the first time I tried out this recipe as it is very basic. I wanted to give it a shot and see if it is something I would really like. I did, and Hubby did even more. Next time I cook this recipe I will probably add peppers, onions and pineapple to the mix. Yum!
