Gently Flavored Sour Chicken

Gently Flavored Sour Chicken

This is really just for kids.
Even chicken breast meat will be tender with this recipe. I minimized the acidity level and omitted any bothersome steps. My motto is easy and delicious.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken breast (or chicken thigh)
1 small
Carrot
1/2
Onion
1/2
Green pepper
1
◎Water
200 ml
◎Ketchup
2 tablespoons
◎Vinegar
1 tablespoon
◎Oyster sauce
1/2 tablespoon
◎Chicken soup stock granules
1 teaspoon
◎Sugar
1 rounded teaspoon

Steps

1. Chop up the pepper roughly. Cut up the carrot into thin pieces. Cut the onion in half and cut into wedges. Combine the ◎ ingredients.
2. Cut the chicken diagonally into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle the chicken with a little salt and 1 tablespoon of katakuriko (not listed) and massage well into the chicken.
3. Heat some oil in a frying pan and pan fry the chicken. Take the chicken out when it turns pale. Stir fry the vegetables.
4. When the onion is translucent, wipe out any excess fat in the pan, add the ◎ ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the chicken; after simmering for a bit the sauce will thicken.
5. It's also delicious to use cut-up leftovers from the previous night's karaage.

Story Behind this Recipe

My kids can't eat very sour food yet, so I wondered if I could still make tasty sweet and sour chicken while minimizing the sourness.
This is for kids, not adults, but I also recommend it to people who don't like sour flavors.
