Sometimes you need something simple for lunch or dinner. With our busy schedules, you don’t want to cook for too long and stir-fry is often the way to go. Also, not all stir-fry dishes need to have all kinds of vegetables in them but you can still add it to your crispy sweet and sour chicken. Food never needs to be complicated and this recipe provides you with crunch and flavour in every bite without taking hours in front of your stove after work.
The corn starch works great to add crispiness instead of flour and will also thicken the sauce a bit more when you combine them. Add some spices like paprika to the corn starch for a bit of extra kick to the seasoning. When combining the chicken with the sweet and sour sauce, don’t cook them together too long so that the chicken stays crispy. You need a steaming bowl of fluffy rice to make the best of this recipe and it’s all ready in under 30 minutes.
Stir-fry is a great dish to enjoy with your whole family and this crispy sweet and sour chicken recipe is going to be your new weekly favourite.
