It’s kind of surprising to me that sweet and sour chicken is way more popular than sweet and sour pork. Maybe because sweet and sour pork is definitely what I grew up with. But, pork or chicken, this sweet and tart sauce is so GOOD with fluffy white rice. Forget takeout or delivery, this is better.
This is a variation on our authentic oven-baked sweet and sour pork, featuring chicken. It’s an easy, healthy, 8 ingredient, no deep fry version of the classic takeout favorite.
Baking your chicken isn’t quite the same as deep frying, but for the lack of effort it takes, it’s amazing. The chicken ends up juicy with the slightest bit of crispiness thanks to a cornstarch coating. Besides no cleanup, no expensive oil to throw away, and no splatter, this is also way better for you, so you can feel good about eating it every night, and you’re going to want to. It tastes just as good as the deep fried version with none of the guilt.
Serve this up with some:
An easy, healthy, 8 ingredient, no deep fry version of that classic take out favorite: Chinese sweet and sour chicken
Serves 2 as a main or 4 with other dishes.
