Sweet and Sour Chicken, Brown Rice

Submitted by: LEGRAY1


Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    For the Sauce
    1 Cup orange juice
    2 tbsp sugar
    2 tsp tomato puree
    2 tsp tomato ketchup
    2 tbsp white wine vinegar
    2 tbsp sherry
    1 red pepper, chopped
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 small pot pineapple chunks in juice
    2 tbsp cornflour

    For the chicken
    1 tbsp self raising flour
    1 tbsp cornflour
    1 egg
    pinch of salt
    420g chicken breast, diced
    5 tbsp groundnut or vegetable oil

    1.5 cups brown rice


Directions

Place a large saucepan on a medium heat and add all the sauce ingredients, apart from the cornflour. Let the sauce bubble for 5 minutes.
Mix the 2tbsp cornflour with a little cold water. Slowly pour the cornflour into the sauce, a little at a time, until you have the desired consistency. Set aside and begin cooking the chicken.
Mix the SR flour, cornflour, eggs and salt together in a large bowl. Add the chicken and coat thoroughly. If you have time let the chicken marinage for half an hour in the fridge.
Place a wok on a medium-high heat and pour in the oil. Shallow fry the chicken in batches until golden and cooked through. Place the cooked chicken on some chicken roll to soak up some of the excess oil.
Once the chicken is cooked reheat the sauce and add the chicken.
Serve with the cooked brown rice.
