Sweet and Sour Chicken
How to Make Sweet and Sour Chicken
- Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, 1 tsp oil and ice water in bowl and mix thoroughly.
- In a deep fryer or deep pot, heat oil to 325°F.
Place chicken pieces in shallow bowl.
Pour just enough batter over chicken pieces to coat.
Add the coated chicken pieces to the hot oil in small batches and fry about 3 minutes or until light golden brown.
Remove and drain. Repeat until remaining chicken pieces are cooked.
- At this point you can double fry if desired - otherwise serve your chicken over noodles or rice and top with Sweet and Sour Sauce.
- To Double Fry:
Raise temperature of oil to 350-360°F.
Put a batch of the cooked chicken pieces into the hot oil and fry until deep golden brown.
Remove and drain. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
