Happy Chinese New Year
The year of the Rooster was celebrated on the 28th January 2017 and celebrations continue from then until the Lantern Festival. This festival is on the 15th day of the Chinese Lunar month which is the 11th February 2017.
To celebrate this I have taken the classic Chinese take-away recipe of Sweet and Sour Battered Chicken and made my own version.
Believe me, this is better than the take-away version and you would be pushed to go back. I would rather have this, than the take-away anytime.
I actually cooked this dish on the 28th January 2017 for the Chinese New Year and we devoured it. It was so popular that the kids wanted more. Maybe I should have doubled the recipe to satisfy the kids little bellies.
I also served this with egg fried rice.
To sum this up I would say this is a great versatile Chinese dish that pleases everyone and is easy to prepare and cook. What other reasons do you need to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
