Really great I made it and everyone enjoyed it, try it make it
We loved this recipe, delicious, easy .
Easy to follow and quick to make. Added onions and carrots. Very delicious
Can I use rice vinegar instead of white vinegar?
Thanks! I wanna try this tonight!
Yes, rice vinegar should work just fine. Happy cooking!
I pretty much followed the recipe except I added carrot, onions and tomatoes to the red peppers. Believe it or not, firm chopped tomatoes are good in sweet and sour chicken! It turned out pretty well. I will make again.
Patrick again forgot the stars and I never 5 but hey
Could I substitute the egg whites for anything else?
Yes, you could try using 3 tablespoons of liquid from a can of chickpeas or other light-colored beans. This is one of our favorite go-to egg replacers! Hope it works great.
I love to cook but shy away from Chinese dishes, so thus is my first, I followed completely easily, only adding a few chili flakes, it was stunning, thank you so much, I now believe, so bring it on. Just want the recipe book. any one wanting to try this trust me it’s so easy to follow, thank you so much, what a dinner.
Definitely a keeper and repeater. Very quick and easy to throw together and tastes great. Better then my local place as well. Hoping there’s some leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
It turned out better then the Chinese sold locally……
It tastes just like take out! I doubled the sauce and added onions, snow peas and water chestnuts to the peppers. I sauteed the onions with the peppers for a few minutes to let them soften. The water chestnuts were added with the pineapple. At the end, I added some corn starch slurry to thicken the sauce. I’d make it again in a heartbeat.
I’ve been attempting new recipes while stuck at home during the apocalypse. Ms. Hair’s sweet and sour chicken has been the best! It’s been a major hit with the in-laws. Juicy, full of flavor and healthy eating. Loved the lighter coating vs the too heavy traditional coating you get when ordering Chinese. Goes great with just plain buttered rice. Thank you!
The chicken texture was great.
Great recipe! I did add ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes and paprika to the marinade. I also re-dipped the chicken in corn starch prior to dropping them into the grease to make them a bit more crunchy. Overall super!
This was wonderful. I live in a place where we don’t have good Chinese food. This is certainly Americanized, but really good. I added some carrot for orange and a handful of frozen peas for green. Everyone ate up and wanted leftovers for lunch the next day. I also used fresh pineapple and juiced some as we have plenty of that.
I’m in a wasteland of bad Chinese restaurants, too. Glad you can top that in the comfort of your own home!
Made it for our dinner tonight. My husband and my toddler girl like it so much. I added minced shallots and garlics. Replace brown sugar with honey. And used fresh pineapple instead of canned one.
Definitely making this more. Really good! Good thing i cut the chicken breast thinly. Easier to fry.
Very good and a comparatively healthy version of the classic dish, but I think next time I’ll add a clove or two of chopped garlic with the ginger and will sub a teaspoon or so of soy sauce for the salt in the sauce,
hello. can I use flour instead of corn starch? thanks!
In a pinch, yes, but since the cornstarch is what gives this its Chinese take-out texture, it won’t be quite the same. Your call!
I tried it with the flour it came out pretty good! I will try cornstarch next time it will be crisper as flour is moister.
Thank you Sara!
