The Best Sweet And Sour Chicken Ever!

That I cooked anyway. I suck at cooking this dish so this was really a surprise.


I got the recipe from a cheap cookbook. Readers in Manila are familiar about this. I got this from “Manong Books”. Hehe, I think you know what I mean. I got a few good recipes from that book. I just gathered them and put them in my Recipe Binder.

As always, I tweaked the recipe again but it’s fairly easy.

1 small can of pineapple chunks
soy sauce
brown sugar
grated fresh ginger, about 1 teaspoon
tomato sauce
chicken fillets (I used breast)
red capsicum
spring onions

Let’s get cooking!
1. I cut the fillets into bite-size pieces and seasoned them with salt and pepper. I then dredged them in cornstarch. Shake. Fry until golden. Set aside.

2. Drain the pineapple chunks and set the juice aside n a bowl. In the same bowl, add soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger and tomato sauce. You can also add some lemon juice. I didn’t put the measurements because I added more as my husband likes more sauce. Mix well. Adjust according to your preference.

3. Stir fry vegetables in a wok. Add chicken and sauce. In a cup, mix together some water and cornstarch until dissolved. Add to the mixture to thicken. Serve hot with rice.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!
