Here’s another dish that uses sweet and sour sauce, Sweet and Sour Chicken takes its influence from the Chinese, it’s a perfect blend between the sourness of the pineapple and the sweetness of the sugar.

The sauce works well with other meat like pork [see the Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe] or even fish.

Sweet and Sour Chicken is best served on top of the steaming rice. Enjoy!
