Sweet and Sour Chicken Redux

The last time I made sweet & sour chicken the sauce was so thick I couldn't toss it with the chicken. But since the flavors were good, SP asked that I try again. I think I'm about three-quarters of the way to perfecting this dish.

This time the sauce was a little too thin and the chicken wasn't as crispy as last time. I should have thickened the sauce more but I was a little gun-shy. Instead of broccoli I decided to saute some peppers and onions and mix that with pineapple chunks, in keeping with how they serve this dish in restaurants.
Pin It!


  1. Looks delicious and as they say, the third time's a charm! Hopefully the next time you make it, it will be as perfect as you hope. I think it looks great as is! :)

  2. I am glad you gave it another try. I made it again this evening and used just egg whites instead of the whole egg to coat the chicken. I found that the whites did not brown and crisp as nice as the whole egg did. Oh well for trying to cut calories. ;)
