Last weekend I was tired and lazy, and I just wanted to make something very straightforward. Instead of creating a surprising combination I made this sweet&sour fried Chinese chicken with pineapple and red bell pepper. it is just delicious, easy and made in minutes after you have marinated the chicken.
I think it is incredible how easy and fast a Chinese recipe can be on your plate. That is also the reason why you never have to wait for a long time at the takeaway. Prerequisite is only that the chicken strips have marinated during a few hours before frying them. Then they are full of flavour and spices. You only have to bake or fry them on high temperature and ready they are.
The basic idea for this recipe comes from soupbelly. I don't think the foodblog is active anymore, but their recipe from 2010 is still online. To improve the taste experience on your tongue, I added bell pepper as an additional ingredient.
I love the Asian kitchen. A few months ago I published a similar recipe from the Thai kitchen: sweet&sour Thai chicken with peaches. I just notice that even the presentation on the dish is quite similar.
More Tibetan style (with a European scent) is my chicken chowmein, based on an experience in a local restaurant in Kathmandu.
If you speak Dutch, you can find the Dutch version of this recipe on gerechtenweb.blog.
