Pan-fried Chicken in Sweet and Sour Sauce

Sweet and sour sauce is a kind of versatile sauce, going very well with any kind of meat, like pork, beef including chicken of course. This dish, pan-fried chicken in sweet and sour sauce is perfect for going with white rice. You can deep fry the chicken if you like. This time I just pan fried the chicken for saving the oil, good to health as well.

Ingredients:
  • 275 gm chicken thigh fillet (or chicken breast)
  • 1/2 capsicum
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 slices pineapple (fresh or canned)

  • salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp water
Marinade:
