2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
Oil for frying

Batter:

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons Lingham brand hot sauce/chili sauce

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and sour chicken is delicious. Easy sweet and sour chicken recipe that calls for chicken, sweet and sour sauce that is better than takeout.

When it comes to Chinese recipes, there are a few basic cooking methods…one of it is definitely sweet and sour.

I love sweet and sour flavors and have shared quite a few recipes, such as sweet and sour pork, sweet and sour fishsweet and sour fish balls.  Sweet and sour sauce goes extremely well with plain white rice; it also “opens up” your appetite.

Today, I am sharing my sweet and sour chicken recipe with you. Sweet and sour chicken is a simple recipe that is friendly to most people. The key to a great sweet and sour chicken is that you don’t want your chicken to swim in the sweet and sour sauce like what most Chinese restaurants do. The sauce should lightly coat the chicken cubes so they don’t turn soggy. Another secret is  the use of baking powder in the frying batter, which does a great job in giving the battered fried chicken an extra crunch. Try it and let me know how your sweet and sour chicken turns out!
