SWEET AND SOUR CHICKEN
200gm boneless and skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size cubes
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and cut into squares (3 color bell pepper)
1 small tomato, cut into wedges, optional
1 stalk spring onion, cut into 2-inch lengths
Oil, for deep frying
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Sweet and Sour Sauce:
6 tablespoons ketchup
4 tablespoons chili sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese rice vinegar
2 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon corn starch
4 dashes white pepper powder
Cut the chicken breast meat into bite-size cubes. Mix the batter in a bowl and add the chicken cubes into the batter.
Mix the Sweet and Sour sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat up cooking oil in a wok and deep fry the chicken cubes. (Shake off the extra batter before frying). Transfer the chicken out on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the excess oil. Transfer the cooking oil out and leave only 2 tablespoons oil in the wok.
Add garlic and saute the garlic until light brown and then follow by the bell peppers. Stir-fry until you smell the aroma. Add the sweet and sour sauce into the wok and bring it to boil. Toss in the chicken, tomatoes and add the chopped scallions, do a few quick stirs, dish out and serve immediately with steamed white rice.
