Easy Mandarin Chicken

Russ Myers


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.

How to Make Easy Mandarin Chicken


  • 1Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Beat eggs in a shallow bowl with a fork: set aside.

    Pour cornstarch into a shallow bowl and roll chicken in it. When coated, dip chicken into beaten eggs.
  • 2Heat just enough oil to cover the bottom of a non stick skillet on medium high heat. Place coated chicken pieces into the pan and heat until brown
  • 3In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients: pineapple juice, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ketchup and salt. Pour on browned chicken.

    Simmer chicken with the lid covering only half of the pan to let the heat escape.
  • 4Simmer 20 to 30 minutes, stirring often, until sauce thickens.

    Serve with rice and ENJOY
