  1. My family loved this it was amazing tasted just like our take away but a lot cheaper thank you for sharing

  2. Can I ask please, number 8, cook the chicken, how much oil, just a small amount or do you shallow fry it? Thanks

  3. I did this for the first time today. It was easy to do and was very tasty. Better than any jar.

  4. There is pineapple in the picture but not in the recipe, as I follow recipes to the letter as I cant cook, should I add it?!

  5. Absolutely delicious, just like the one from the local Chinese! My boyfriend said it’s the best meal I’ve ever cooked him…Thank you!

  6. Absolutely loved this. Made it tonight for dinner, my 13yo son said it eas the best thing ive ever made lol. Im not a fan of sweet and sour myself, so was surprised how much i liked it. Made with red wine vinegar as thats what i had in the cupboard, cooked in about 1″ of oil keeping the batches warm in the oven. Delicious, totally recommend.
