The dish ‘sweet and sour chicken’ you probably know from take-away chinese food. I always take this dish if we are going out to eat Chinese. Even tough I am a big fan of the original recipe, I wanted to try something new. I decided to work with peaches and passion fruit for this recipe. If you are a fan of passion fruit, you will definitely love this recipe. The sweet peaches on sirop in combination with the sour taste of the passion fruit fits perfect in the theme ‘sweet and sour’. Ofcourse you can also make this dish in 15 minutes.
Boil 1,5 litres of water in an electric cooker. Let the water boil and add the bag of rice. Let it cook for about 10 minutes (depending on the instructions of the rice).
I worked with pre-sliced chicken breast. If your chicken isn't sliced yet into small pieces, you can do this first. Marinade the chicken in 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of honey.
Take 4 half pieces of peach out of the can. Now, slice them into little pieces of 1 cm.
Fry the chicken 4 minutes in a frying pan until they are done.
Meanwhile make your sauce: Pour half of the sirop from the ca nwith peaches in a bowl. Add 1 clove of garlic, 2 tablespoons of ketchup, 2 tabelspoons of white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of passion fruit. Mix everything well.
Now add the little pieces of peaches to the chicken and fry them for another minute.
Add the sauce to the chicken and peaches and let it simmer for another minute.
