Sweet and Sour Chicken is a classic dish in any Chinese restaurants and a popular takeout dish too. It is such an appetizing dish that appeals to everyone including kids. I love the combination of sweet, savory and tangy taste. Of course, you can always add some hot sauce for a spicy kick too.
Traditionally, it can be made with pork, chicken or fish. The meat is coated with eggs and flour then deep fried before adding into the sauce. Well, I can’t deny how good this is as I used to eat them quite frequently during my carb eating days. But frankly, you have to enjoy the dish immediately to feel the crunch in the meat. Otherwise, it just becomes soggy after soaking in the sauce. With this low carb version, I have simplified the process without any frying and yet the taste is not compromised. It is super easy to whip up and by adding the sunny side up egg, it just becomes a guilt free and delicious one dish meal.
