I am not sorry that this sweet and sour chicken dish of mine didn’t require deep frying.
Oh, do not fret my friends, I guarantee that it will still remain delicious! Believe me.
Unlike the sweet and sour chicken that we are accustomed to nowadays, you know the heavily battered deep fried chicken fritters version, I grew up with my grandmother’s version – pan fried meatballs with a simple homemade sweet and sour sauce. I love that it is healthier and much more manageable. After all, no one likes to feel like a grease ball after cooking. Right guys?
With all the stir fry recipes I have shared with you over the years, it’s time that I share my sweet and sour chicken meatballs recipe – inspired by my grandma’s dish. I wanted this recipe to be gluten free so that more people can try it at home. As this recipe requires soy sauce and tomato sauce, I was thrilled to discover that the Fountain Good Choice range of sauces is gluten free. Although I don’t have a gluten intolerance, I still make it a point to stock up on gluten free sauces in case I need to cook for guests who practice a gluten free diet. Aren’t I well prepared?
When it comes to buying sauces for cooking, I’ve always looked for salt reduced and a no sugar option if possible. This will give you the room to add more seasoning without overwhelming the dish. What I like about the Fountain Good Choice sauces range is that it has no added sugar, and it’s salt reduced as well. Best of all it does not contain artificial colours or flavours. The beauty of this range is that these sauces still taste just as good as the regular ones.
