Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken
In This Article

All the flavor of takeout sweet and sour chicken, without a cloying sauce or heart-stopping deep-fried chicken. We sub fresh chicken breast for the deep-fried chicken chunks and a lighter sauce sweetened with just a touch of honey. Tossing the chicken with cornstarch and rice cooking wine before stir-frying is a game-changer, it ensures juicy meat and authentic flavor. Look for rice cooking wine (Shaoxing cooking wine) in Asian markets and in the grocery store where Asian ingredients are sold. It’s inexpensive and keeps indefinitely in your pantry.
