Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

Key Word: Chicken, Chinese Recipes, Stir-fry

Sweet and sour sauce is a kind of versatile sauce, going very well with any kind of meat, like pork, beef including chicken of course. This dish, pan-fried chicken in sweet and sour sauce is perfect for going with white rice. You can deep fry the chicken if you like. This time I just pan fried the chicken for saving the oil, good to health as well.
