Wonderful!! I made the batter up and while it set, I heated the oil and got everything ready to fry. I made shrimp, chicken bites, and pineapple chunks. Served all of this with a sweet and sour sauce, over rice. Added a few sauted green pepper slices, oh my, it was so good!! Thank you Barbara, this will get a lot of use!
I used this batter for sweet and sour pork which I cooked then stir-fried with green peppers, onions, and carrots along with Beachgirl's "Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce" Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce. It turned out excellent and is definitely something I will prepare again, with pork, and also with shrimp and perhaps chicken. Thanks for a great recipe!
This recipe is very good and easy. My grandaughter and I used it when we made sweet and sour shrimp and lemon chicken. I will definitely use it again. It will also go in a recipe book I am making for all my grandchildren. Peggy Loessin Albuquerque, NM
