Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir Fry

Carolyn Haas


I like S&S chicken, but not too sweet. The banana ketchup has some sweetness to it already, so I skip the sugar. Suit yourself! It works either way!

How to Make Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir Fry


  1. In a measuring cup, combine 1/2 cup of water, ketchup and the brown sugar if using regular ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, salt and 1 Tb. cornstarch. (I buy my fresh pineapple cored, so there's usually a little pineapple juice in the bottom of the container - use that instead of water if you have it!) Set aside.
  2. Put rest of cornstarch in a zipper bag, add chicken and shake to coat.
  3. In wok, heat oil, add chicken and veggies. Stir fry until chicken is cooked. Make a well in the center. Add reserved liquid mixture. Stir until mixture thickens. Add pineapple chunks. Sprinkle a few drops sesame oil on top. Serve with rice.
