I love Asian foods of all kinds. Sushi, ramen, tom yum soup, pho, you name it, I've likely had it, or I like it. With that said, I decided to make another childhood favorite of mine, sweet and sour chicken.
I don't typically fry things, the smell it creates takes days to go away, but sometimes? Sometimes you gotta heat up that oil and get cooking! So, to try and get as close to restaurant style as we could, we battered and fried our chicken before making a nice sweet and sour sauce. We thought we could add some color and flavor variety but tossing in half a bag of Sno Pac Organic Peas, available in our grocery section for your convenience.
Other than that, this Halal sweet and sour chicken is good and saucy to make sure you can serve this with a helping of white rice.
