SWEET AND SOUR CHICKEN

The title of this post is a little deceiving because I did not make the sweet and sour sauce. I used a pre-made sweet and sour sauce by Lee Kum Kee and kudos to that brand for making cooking easier on us. Tee hee. Anyway, the highlight of this dish would be my fried chicken because if you knew me in the kitchen, you would know that I have a problem frying anything. Everything that was supposed to be deep-fried ended up either grilled or pan fried. I think it is because I have a problem with the amount of oil needed to actually fry something. So, to make the perfect battered chicken that goes with the sweet and sour sauce, I decided to toughen myself up and pour out that oil! The oil should be enough to cover or submerge your meats. To prepare the chicken, cut the chicken meat into small chunks and coat them with flour mixed with some salt, white pepper and a pinch of cumin. When that is done, place the chicken chunks into the oil until they are lightly browned. Then, remove the meats and drain out the oil using paper towels. To make the sauce, use about a tablespoon of olive oil and fry the minced garlic until fragrant. Then, add in some water and the pre-made sweet and sour sauce. When the consistency thickens, toss in the fried chicken and allow it to simmer for awhile. When that is done, the dish is ready to be served with yummy white rice.
