Sweet and Sour Chicken

Looking for a recipe for chineese restaurant style sweet and sour chicken. Something with a crisp outside batter would be good. I have both a deep fryer and a wok. Any suggestions?

This is my families favorite Sweet and Sour Chicken.

Sweet and Sour Chicken



Batter:
1 egg
3/4 cup ice cold water
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon accent
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cornstarch

Mix egg and water together, add the rest of ingredients, mix together by hand. Do not over mix, some lumps will remain. Add cubed up chicken (not to large) stir.
Carefully drop chicken into hot oil, do not crowd the chicken. You do not want them to all stick together. Fry until golden brown and chicken is cooked. Keep warm in oven while cooking other batches.

Sweet And Sour Sauce

3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoon vinegar
3 tablespoon Ketchup
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup water

Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until sauce is thick and bubbly.

You are so welcome! My son has to agree with you. He loves his sweet and sour chicken.
