Sweet and Sour Chicken

Ingredients

For the chicken:
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 eggs, beaten 
  • Oil to fry
For the sauce:
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1/2 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
For the garnish:
  • Chopped scallions
  • Sesame seeds
  • Rice, for serving
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Coat with cornstarch and shake the excess off. Dip chicken pieces into egg. 

Add oil in a thin layer in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and fry until golden, crispy and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from oil and set on a paper towel-lined plate.

In a separate large pan, heat canola oil and fry garlic until fragrant.


Add the bell pepper, cider vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup and sugar. Bring to a boil.


When the sauce has thickened, add the fried chicken. Toss to coat.


Garnish with chopped scallions and sesame seeds. Serve with rice.
