LouLou's Homemade Sweet & Sour Chicken - A Recipe!

There is nothing better then making a take away at home, you know exactly whats going in it and it most of the time it tastes so much better whether it be homemade kebab, pizza or in this case chinese!
Here is what you will need to make my homemade sweet and sour chicken:

  • 1 carrot.
  • 1 orange peper.
  • 1 pack of baby corn.
  • 1 clove of garlic.
  • 150g of tomato ketchup.
  • 50g brown sugar.
  • 50g malt vinegar.
  • 50g sweet chilli sauce.
  • 1tbsp soya sauce.
  • 1 tin pineapple chunks in juice. 
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts. 
  • Rice and peas to serve.

To start slice your carrots very thinly and cut your pepper and corn into chunks, place these in a fry pan with your crushed garlic clove and fry gently. Once softened add your tomato ketchup, sugar, vinegar, chilli sauce, soya sauce and the juice from the pineapple. Simmer the sauce until it starts to thicken and then add the chicken breasts cut into chunks and the pineapple.

Whilst the chicken is warming through and the sauce is thickening cook come rice and peas in a saucepan to packet instructions and serve with your sweet and sour chicken. This is by far one of my favourite weekend treats and I think it tastes so much fresher then a take away chinese not to mention cheaper!

Thank you for reading.
