Sweet-n-Sour Pineapple Chicken


This Sweet-n-Sour Pineapple Chicken is my all time Indo-Chinese dishes. I prepared this after a long gap few days ago. It turned out good so thought of sharing the recipe with you. I served it with Schezwan Egg Fried Rice and Dry Chilli Chicken. You can serve it as a starter too.

  2. After 30 minutes add 1 egg and corn flour. Add a little salt. Mix very well. The corn flour should coat the chicken pieces from all sides.
