Sweet and Sour Chicken

I don't know about you, but every time I have had homemade Sweet and Sour Chicken, it never tastes as good as you get at a Chinese restaurant. The sweet and sour sauce is always too vinegary and if you buy the jarred sauce, well, that's just nasty.

Last night around one a.m., I told my hubby that I was craving Chinese food. Since there are no restaurants open that late, I looked at recipezaar and, like always, searched by rating. This is the first recipe that popped up. We were too tired to make it last night so I made it for dinner tonight.

It tastes exactly like you get at a GOOD Chinese restaurant! The sauce is sweet and the batter on the chicken is beautiful! Best of all, it's EASY.Go here for the recipe


  1. oh my, that looks so yummy! i will definitely have to try this!

  2. Hey..we tried this for dinner last night. Easy and delish. Loved it and I only made half the recipe....and the kiddies ate it all up! Henry was going nuts and told me I'm a great chef. Thanks for sharing. A new fam fave. I had tons of sauce (I guess I should have halved that too) but froze it for next time. I'm so glad you posted this!

  3. I agree! This recipe was so yummy! And I love your blog!
