Sweet and Sour Chicken

I know- I know! This isn't a recipe blog! But I tried this recently and it was so good that I wanted to share it! This definitely is NOT diet food! =)

1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup cold water

2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts or Thighs
Oil for frying

Sweet and Sour Sauce
half a can of canned pineapple drained- save juice- cut in bite size pieces
3/4 cup of pineapple juice from drained pineapple (add water if neccesary)
2 T rice vinegar or ordinary white vinegar
3 T Catsup
2/3 cup white sugar
Vegetables such as carrots, red pepper, green pepper, zucchini, sliced onion all washed and sliced. The more colorful the nicer it looks!

Cut chicken into bite size pieces and sprinkle with salt.

Sauce- Put juice, vinegar, sugar and ketchup in Saucepan and stir till combined. Heat till boiling. Add a bit of cold water to cornstarch until you can stir it and add to saucepan. Stir till thickened. Add vegetables and turn off heat. Your vegetables will cook in the sauce and not be too soggy and wilted. They will be crispy and perfect.

Mix Batter ingredients and dip chicken in batter then deep fry in oil. Fry till golden brown.

Arrange cooked rice on a platter and top with pork. Pour sweet and sour sauce and serve hot immediately.


I have to mention that Thai Rice is the best kind! It really has a great flavor. If you try this let me know how you like it.
