This recipe is another one that I must say is one of my favorites. The stir fry chicken marinade is the best. Sweet and sour chicken with sweet bell peppers mixed in gives this recipe an extra flavor boost! Not that it needs it, but enough of the small talk. Let me show you how to make sweet and sour chicken.
What chicken do I use for this sweet and sour chicken Chinese style?
For this sweet and sour chicken recipe, I used chicken breast and cut them up into small bite-size pieces, but if you don’t have any chicken breast on hand, you can use chicken tenders for this recipe that will work as well. I wouldn’t recommend any other chicken than that.
How do I make sweet and sour sauce?
To make the sauce for this chicken recipe is truly simple. Add ketchup, water, sugar, soy sauce, and cornstarch to a bowl. Mix all those ingredients together, and there is your sauce to smother your chicken.
How do I make easy sweet and sour chicken recipes?
You will first need to gather your ingredients (chicken, flour, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, garlic powder, salt, pepper, soy sauce, eggs, water, vegetable oil, and cornstarch). Cut your bell peppers into bite-size pieces. Once you have done this, make sure to clean your chicken thoroughly. Now, cut your chicken into bite-size pieces. Place your chicken in a bowl and season the chicken with salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Sit your chicken to the side. Add flour, cornstarch, eggs, soy sauce, and water to another bowl. Next, mix those ingredients. In a pan, preheat your vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Grab the chicken that you sat to the side.
Use your tongs to dip the chicken into the batter, then gently place it into the hot grease. Use a meat thermometer to see if meat has reached 170 degrees. This can take a while because there are so many pieces of chicken. If you are comfortable, remove the chicken once they are golden brown and check. If the chicken is not done, keep frying until done.

There you have it, sweet and sour chicken.
