Instructions:

  • For the preparation of the chicken, place the pieces of chicken in a bowl and season them with salt and pepper. The chicken should be coated in cornflour until it is evenly coated, and then each piece should be dipped in beaten eggs, with any leftover egg going down the drain.
  • Begin by heating the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Then, fry the chicken. Fry the chicken in batches until it is golden brown and crispy, which should take approximately three to four minutes per side. The chicken should be transferred to a plate lined with paper towels so that any excess oil may drain off.

  • This is how you make the sweet and sour sauce: Put the ketchup, apple cider vinegar, pineapple juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce into a pot and mix them together. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a simmer but no longer boil.
  • To thicken the sauce, produce a slurry by combining cornflour and water in a small bowl. Repeat this process. Using a whisk, gradually incorporate the slurry into the sauce that is simmering until it reaches the required consistency. Turn off the heat source for the pot.

 

  • To prepare the vegetables for stir-frying, heat two tablespoons of vegetable oil in a separate skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Incorporate chopped bell peppers, diced onions, grated ginger, and minced garlic into the mixture. For two to three minutes, stir-fry the vegetables until they are somewhat soft but still have a crisp texture.
  • Bring everything together: After the veggies have been stir-fried, add the fried chicken and pineapple chunks to the mixture. The chicken and veggies should be topped with the sweet and sour sauce that has been prepared. Toss everything together in a gentle manner until it is well covered in the sauce.

  1. To be honest when I’m reading through the recipe instruction’s, I’m completely turned off by the ads that pop up showing a dead rat and telling me how to “stop rodents without poison”.
    I’ll look for another recipe.
