Sweet 'n Sour Chicken

READY IN: 30mins

Sweet and sour dishes are so versatile! All you need are the basics and then just add what you like or have on hand.If you like this, put more of it in, if you don't like that, don't put so much in. As long as you are happy with the sauce, you can add baby sweet corn on the cob, baby sweet gherkins, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, carrots or bell peppers (try using multi colors!). Just have fun creating!
