Sweet & Sour Chicken, Turkey or Pork
Sweet and Sour Chicken, Turkey or Pork is a really simple, quick and cheap recipe for students to do, and it tastes great. Chicken is an expensive meat! You may find pork or turkey to be a cheaper option! As yet I’ve not tried this meal with Turkey, but I’ve been told it tastes good!
- 1/2 Chopped Onion
- 1 Chicken Breast or Pork, Turkey portion
- 3-4 Mushrooms
- 1/2 Red Pepper
- Clove of Garlic
- 1 Tablespoon Tomato Puree
- 1 Tablespoons of Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of White Wine Vinegar (Around 50p a Bottle in Tesco)
- 1/2 Tablespoon of Cornflour
- Handful of Bean Sprouts
- 2 or 3 Spring Onions
- 1/4 of a Yellow and Green Peppers.
- 1-2 Rings of Chopped up Tinned Pineapple
- Start your rice boiling, at the same time put your chopped onion in to a frying pan with a small amount of oil and fry until soft.
- Add the chicken, turkey or pork chopped up into bite size pieces into the frying pan and cook until browned
- To make your sweet and sour sauce, put the tomato puree, sugar, white wine vinegar and cornflour in a sauce pan along with 1/2 a mug of water and stir until it is all the same thickness and colour. Leave it to cool/thicken a bit on the hob until your chicken is cooked.
- Once the chicken is cooked at the sweet and sour sauce to it along with the bean sprouts, peppers, garlic and mushrooms and leave for around 10 minutes on on a high heat until it boils then on a low heat for the remainder. You may wish to fry your vegetables before putting the sauce on but its not a requirement.
- Drain the rice and serve with the chicken/pork/turkey on a plate.
This is a much cheaper way of having sweet and sour than buying a premade sauce or having a takeaway!
