Comfort Food Recipe – Sweet and Sour Chicken

Published January 27, 2010 by Mary Jane

Hello people, it’s back to a chicken dish again – I love chicken…this dish is pretty common and you can order it everywhere in any Chinese restaurant. I’ve come to a realisation that sometimes it’s just as easy to buy packets of pre-mix sauces than making your own. As when you get home from work all you want is to whip up a fast dish and sit by the couch with the TV on and eat your these days, when I feel kinda lazy to make sauces from scratch I would resolve to my packet of pre-mix sauces that would taste pretty good. However, not all pre-mix packet of sauces are tasty – it’s a matter of trial and error until you get accustom to the particular brand. 🙂

Here it is…

Sweet and Sour Chicken


5 chicken thigh pieces
1/2 a zucchini
1 – 2 cloves of garlic
1 table spoon of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon of vinegar
1 teaspoon of soya sauce
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 cup of pineapple pieces


1. Chop up the chicken thighs into bite size pieces, heat up pan with some oil and add in minced garlic and stir fry with chicken pieces until golden brown, add in chopped up zucchini – if you don’t like zucchini you can put in red capsicum instead.

2. Mix up the sweet and sour sauce – you can buy any pre-mix packet sauce or alternatively you can mix your own sauce – mix together – Tomato sauce, vinegar, soya sauce and sugar. Pour this sauce into the pan.

3. Stir fry around until the sauce coats the chicken and then chuck in pineapple pieces. Now if you don’t like pineapple like me – you can miss this 🙂 Plate up and serve with steamed rice..
