One of my favs. I add cornstarch to the sauce as well to thicken it up a bit.

It turned out amazing, I added fresh garlic and instead of white vinegar I used wine vinegar, I also added mango chutney at the end over my chicken and rice . This recipe no doubt will meet your sweet and soury needs.’

Scrumptious! Have made numerous times and everyone likes it. Definitely recommend making extra sauce. Delicious dipping sauce for egg rolls.

Love this recipe!!! The family asks for it weekly!!
It wasn’t too bad a bit too sour for me, but my son loved it.
Nicole S. 15 Jul
Loved it It’s a little time consuming but we eat this about once a month. The only adjustment I make is that I use Mrs. Dash garlic and herb and I always make a triple batch of sauce!
Better than take out. The prep takes longer than expected, and doubling the sauce is advised.

Delish & easy to make!!
turned out great! everyone loved it. I would suggest adding a little flour to the cornstarch to make the coating a little more crunchy.

Great recipe! I added largely chopped Onion and green pepper. perfection!
This was by far the best recipe I've found so far for sweet and sour chicken. It was quick and easy to make. The chicken was very crispy and the sauce was perfect and simple. I will be making this again.

I ran out of egg mix and cornstarch but other then that it turned out pretty good
Ash A. 11 Apr
Delicious! Out did take out.
It is truly delicious. Take more time and effort to prepare than originally planned but it is worth it. I will suggest adding veggies to it, the sauce is really flavorsome and can do with a bit of a tone down. Definately a recipe that I'll make again and again. Oh, add some gushed ginger, its amazing

Delicious!! Spent quality time making this with my 9 year old son. Directions easy enough to let him take the lead. my family loved it!!! We will make this again!! Make the pieces smaller for faster cook time.
We have a new favourite sweet and sour chicken recipe
Because I was cooking for 2... I halved everything.... and the result was amazing. The chicken was tender... the sauce was beautiful and so easy. Definitely making more in the future
