Sweet & Sour Chicken

Updated on June 12, 2013

Sweet or Sour?

5 stars from 1 rating of Sweet and Sour Chicken

Nice and Quick

Although slightly higher in carbohydrate per portion than an ordinary stir-fry, I try to keep the Carbs to a minimum in comparison to an ordinary Chinese recipe, which is usually very rich. I do this as this recipe is created for people on a diet or with Diabetes to able to enjoy nice, rich and tasty Chinese food, without the extra sugar and fat. Enjoy!
