  • 1 Green Bell Peppers cut into smaller squares

  • 1 Red Bell Pepper cut into smaller squares

  • Canola or Vegetable Oil (for frying chicken)

  • 1/2 Tbs Olive Oil (for peppers)

  • Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Ketchup

  • 3 Tbs Sugar

  • 2.5 Tbs White Vinegar

  • 1 Tsp Soy Sauce

  • Marinate chicken with salt and pepper for 15 minuets.
  • Add all the sauce ingredients together and set aside
  • Add the batter ingredients together and set aside
  • Heat canola oil in a deep pot/skillet until hot. Dip each of the chicken peaces into the batter mixture then place into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the pan (I did my chicken in three different batches)
  • Fry the chicken for 1 minute without turning them.
  • After the minute continue to turn and fry the chicken for 4-6 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Remove the cooked chicken to a separate plate. Repeat and do the same with the next batches of chicken.
  • In a separate pan once the olive oil is hot add the bell peppers and sauté for 2-3mins.
  • Add the sauce and let simmer for 1-2mins or until it starts to thicken.
  • Add the cooked chicken stir to combine
  • enjoy! I like to serve it with rice!

    Hi, Julia. I was writing down your sweet and sour sauce recipe and I noticed that on the YouTube video, you said 1/4 cup ketchup but here on the recipe, it says 1/2 cup. Which is the correct measurement?

  2. Tried this recipe tonight for dinner and it was absolutely delicious!

  3. This was amazing. I am going to add pineapple chunks to this next time. But amazing and will be making again.
