When you make my Spicy Sweet & Sour Chicken it will remind you of something you ordered from your favorite Chinese restaurant, but this is just a little more special because you made this one yourself.
This is a super simple recipe that even those of us who normally don't make Asian food will definitely have no trouble with.
Recently I was honored when a great Chef by the Name of Michael Van Horn (The Social Chef) made my Sweet & Sour Chicken.He did give it his own special touch which I am sure sent this recipe over the top.The beautiful picture in this post is also all his doing,he is a fantastic photographer as well and I was honored when he so graciously offered it to me to post on my blog for this recipe.I hope you will make sure to seek out Michael and see for your self what a fantastic Chef and Blogger he is.
