My take on my favourite Sweet & Sour Chicken from my Chinese Takeaway.
Makes 2 – approx 450 calories with rice.
2 x chicken Breasts – cubed
50g per person of chosen rice (I had long grain and wild rice)
1 red, green, yellow peppers – chopped
1 handful of garden peas (optional)
2 spring onions – chopped finely
FOR THE SAUCE
50 g brown sugar
2 oz Malt Vinegar
6 oz/150g Tomato Sauce (Ketchup) has to be Heinz
1 small tin pineapple chunks
1 tbsp light soy sauce
(remember 1 part sugar, 1 part vinegar to 3 parts sauce/ketchup)
1. Brown off chicken in pan with light spray oil and cook through for about 10 mins
2. Add peppers to pan and cook for further 10 mins, throw in peas and spring onions and heat through for 5 mins.
3. Meanwhile combine all ingredients for sauce and bring to a simmer for 5 mins. If you need to thicken the sauce more put tbsp of cornflour or flour in.
4. Put chicken mix into a bowl or plate and pour sauce over….yummy.
