Today’s recipe is in spirit of the new Chinese New Year. Can you believe this is the first Asian dish I have ever made at home?! Well, having tasted this dish, I think I’m gonna try to learn more about Asian flavours and try more of them, ‘cuz this one was very tasty!
Sweet and sour is a very popular flavour in Chinese dishes and is not limited to chicken. You can make sweet and sour ribs, pork, fish and even shrimp. So, if you’re a fan of this flavour like I am, there are plenty of ways to cook with it!
My version of sweet and sour chicken is healthier than the other version, where chicken is deep fried and served with a sweet and sour sauce.
