One of our favorite quick and delicious meals. It can be made ahead and frozen or simply kept in the fridge. A quick trip into the oven to warm the chicken and heat the sauce on the stovetop and done!

How to Make Sweet and Sour Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, 1 tsp oil and ice water in bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. 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.
  3. At this point you can double fry if desired - otherwise serve your chicken over noodles or rice and top with Sweet and Sour Sauce.
  4. 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.
