Submitted by: PARADISEFOUND


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
    1-1/4 cups sugar
    1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
    1/2 cup white vinegar
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped green pepper
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 tablespoon cornstarch

    BATTER:
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup cornstarch
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 teaspoons sugar
    1-1/3 cups cold water
    Oil for deep-fat frying
    1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks

Directions

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, tomatoes, vinegar, onion, green pepper, soy sauce, ginger and pineapple. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine cornstarch and the reserved pineapple juice until smooth; add to tomato mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; set aside.
For the batter, in a small bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and water until smooth.
In a deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375. Dip chicken pieces in batter; drop into oil and fry about 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and juices run clear. Serve immediately with sweet-sour sauce.

Yield: 4 dozen appetizers or add a side of rice for a dinner for 6 people.
