Sweet and Sour Chicken

     My dad prefers chicken over pork and so do I, but there is only a handful of things you can do with chicken and it's often boring. So today I made sweet and sour chicken for lunch for the first time, and it turned out really good. I used 2 chicken breast fillets and it yielded more meat than I thought, this recipe can feed 8 people. Surprisingly easy to prepare, I'll surely do this again.

  2 chicken breast fillets (about 500 grams)
  flour for breading
  1 medium green bell pepper, sliced
  1 large onion, quartered
  a handful of carrot strips (from leftover carrots)
  2 cloves garlic, diced
  1/2 thumb ginger, sliced

  1 1/2 cups water
  1/4 cup vinegar
  1/2 cup brown sugar
  1 tbsp soy sauce
  4 tbsp ketchup
  2 tsp cornstarch

  salt and pepper to taste

Cooking instructions:
  1. Slice the chicken fillets into strips, season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Bread with flour and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels, set aside.
  3. Saute garlic and ginger. Add the rest of the vegetables and stir fry.
  4. Mix all ingredients for the sauce thoroughly. Add to the vegetables.
  5. Thicken the sauce and add the chicken strips.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
