This is a recipe I definitely did NOT enjoy making! I hate to sound bitter, but what was everybody reviewing?! I normally use my grandma's recipe, but I couldn't find it, so I was super excited when I found a recipe that had seemed like everybody had liked it. 1. Make sure you save the pineapple juice! I knew to, because I have made sweet and sour before. 2. It was indeed really messy. I am new to battering chicken like that. Normally, just season it, egg it, and flour or bread it, than fry. This was not my cup of tea. I used a wok, and maybe that's why, but it all clumped together the first batch I put in. I learned to add one at a time a couple seconds in between. 3. Sweet and sour sauce wasn't quite thick enough for me. I also, took someone's advice and added soy sauce to the recipe. Not a fan! The sauce was pretty bland too and sweet. Good thing I bought a 20ounce can of pineapple, cause I added the rest of the juice, loads of onion powder and a drop of sesame oil. and it ended up coming out tasting okay. 4. I also took note that the peppers would be raw. So, in a separate skillet I sauted the peppers and pineapple in some EVOO and added about a tablespoon of garlic. 5. I served this with Japanese sticky rice. It was OK. Some people liked it, some didn't. I thought the breading on the chicken tasted like a pancake. If you like that sort of thing, go for it! And WOW did I have a mess to clean up!
