Sweet and Sour Chicken


1 lb. chicken breast, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1/2 c. cornstarch

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
bell peppers, sliced
1/2 c. apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp. soy sauce

1/3 c. honey

1/4 c. ketchup

cloves garlic, minced

cooked white rice, for serving


  1. Season chicken, on all sides, with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, dredge chicken in cornstarch until evenly coated. Using tongs, shake off excess cornstarch. In a separate large bowl, toss the chicken in eggs until evenly coated.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and brown on all sides, about 4 minutes. Add bell peppers and sauté with chicken until beginning to soften.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, honey, ketchup, and garlic. Pour sauce into the skillet. Simmer together with the meat for 5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly.
  4. Serve warm with rice.
