Craving for your favorite Asian Sweet and Sour Chicken? Don’t worry, this recipe comes easy and handy. Not to mention, very tasty! I’ve listed my preferred ingredients here. You might notice that I did not add pineapples but you can always add some pineapple chunks if you feel like that will add more flavor to your dish. Just be more adventurous in your kitchen. You’re not limited by this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

CHICKEN BREADING:

  • 2 pieces boneless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch (feel free to add more)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

SAUCE:

  • 1/3 cup tomato ketchup (Pinoys note: don’t use banana ketchup)
  • 4 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar or honey
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
