I love how easy Chinese recipes come together and so will you. This Sweet & Sour Chicken can be made in less than 30 minutes.
Begin by making the sauce. Whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and garlic in a bell jar. Set aside.
Pour enough canola oil into a the wok and heat to approximately 350 degrees.
Meanwhile, set up a dredging station. First, add the cornstarch to a large bowl and dredge the chicken pieces thoroughly. Next, run the chicken pieces through the beaten eggs, and finish by running through the gluten free flour. Add to the oil and cook for approximately 2 - 3 minutes. Add to a strainer over a pot. Cook the remaining chicken pieces. Repeat with all the chicken to get it super crispy. Set aside.
Pour out all but 2 tbsp of the oil. Add the bell peppers and onions and cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Next, add the pineapple and cook for 1 - 2 more minutes. You want the veggies just softened and maintaining some crispness.
Now the sauce is added and cooked for approximately 2 minutes. It is cooked until thickened and all the chicken and veggies are coated.
Serve with white rice. Enjoy!
