Sweet and sour chicken recipe available with tofu

Ingredients : 

  • 2 chicken cutlets or 200 grams of smoked tofu
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 carrots
  • vegetable oil (type ISIO 4) 
  • A few sprigs of coriander.

For the sweet and sour sauce:

  • 20 cl of tomato paste and 10 cl of tomato pulp
  • Canned pineapple
  • 25 cl of the juice of the canned pineapple 
  • 2 tsp garlic 
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons of wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of 5 spices
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch (such as cornflour)
  • Pepper

Preperation : 

  • Cut the chicken or tofu roughly as soon as possible. 
  • Peel and cut the vegetables and pineapple roughly (the same size as the chicken / tofu).
  • In a wok (or a large skillet with high sides), heat 1 tbsp of oil. Brown the chicken (or tofu) over high heat until seared.
  • Add the cut vegetables and cook over high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring (the vegetables should be seared: lightly cooked but still firm).
  • For the sauce : mix the tomato paste, tomato pulp, pineapple juice, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, 5 spices and 1 pinch of pepper then taste (the taste of sour- sweet must be balanced between sweetness, vinegar, the taste of tomato and that of spices).
  • Dilute 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in a glass of cold water. Mix well then add to the rest of the sauce, mix again.
  • Pour the sauce into the rest of the preparation and cook for 5 to 10 minutes over low heat so that the sauce thickens, the chicken and the vegetables finish cooking. 
  • Serve sweet and sour accompanied by white rice and decorated with coriander leaves.
