Hope your weekend has been great? So promised to treat you guys to my special take out home made recipe. And here is number two!
Sweet and sour is a dish that I love.
I have always wondered how they made it, but never bothered to find out, until one day.
Ever since then, I made up my mind to always create my takeout favourites at home.
And the good thing about it is that you can control the calories and contents. Happy days! 😊
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon of tomato ketchup
- 3 tablespoons of vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 3/4 cup of water
- 2 tablespoons of brown or demarera sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of corn flour
- 1 tablespoon of water (to mix the corn flour)
- 1/2 a teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of Chinese five seasoning
- 1 red pepper
- I green pepper
- 1 can of pineapple
- 1 tablespoon of oil
- Frying pan
- Woden spoon
The above will serve 2 people.
Add one of the tablespoon of corn flour and mix. Set aside to be fried.
To make the sweet and sour sauce,
combine all the remaining ingredients (vinegar, water, ketchup, soy sauce, and sugar) and let it boil.
Mix the last tablespoon of corn flour with 1 tablespoon of water first. (This is to ensure that the corn flour does not form lumps in the sauce)
Next add it to the sauce and continue to cook until it is semi thick.
Once it’s cooked and thickened.
Let it cool down for a bit.
Turn off the heat and plate it up. Serve with boiled plain rice or jasmine rice.
