I really do understand that! I love fried chicken like the next person and then smothering it in a nice sweet and sour sauce kicks in all the primal brain functions for eating fat and sweet. Let me be brutally honest here, this is essentially deep fried chicken with a sweet and sour dipping sauce melted all over it.
