Total: 40 minutes



  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1/4 cup bell peppers, sliced
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced


  1. In a shallow bowl, mix together the cornstarch, flour, salt, and black pepper.

  2. Dip the chicken pieces into the cornstarch mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  4. Place the coated chicken pieces into the skillet and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side.

  5. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

  6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the ketchup, rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and minced garlic.

  7. In the same skillet used to cook the chicken, add the pineapple chunks, bell peppers, and diced onion.

  8. Cook the vegetables for 2-3 minutes until slightly softened.

  9. Pour the sauce mixture over the vegetables and stir well to combine.

  10. Add the cooked chicken back into the skillet and stir until the chicken is evenly coated with the sauce.

  11. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

  12. Serve the sweet and sour chicken over steamed rice or noodles.
