Sweet and Sour Chicken


4 servings




1 hour



Saute garlic and ginger for about 1 minute. Stir in sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce. Simmer until sugar dissolves.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together cornstarch and water and pour the mixture into the saucepan. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes until thickened. Set aside.

Season chicken with salt and pepper and stir in the cornstarch.

The sauce will thicken even more as it cools. Cook the chicken until golden brown on all sides (about 3-4 minutes.) and remove from pan.

In the same skillet add vegetables, cook for a few minutes until they get almost tender, and throw in the pineapple.

Stir well and return chicken to the pan, pour the sauce on top.

Stir and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Taste the sauce for seasoning, add salt and pepper if needed.

Serve with scallions, sesame seeds and rice, noodles or other favorite side.
