what you need
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup and 6 Tbsp. water
  • 1 box cornstarch
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 bunch green peppers
  • Peanut oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
make it
Combine in a sauce pan: ketchup, lemon juice, sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Combine in separate bowl 6 Tbsp. water and 4 Tbsp. of cornstarch. Stir until cornstarch is dissolved and add to sauce pan. Heat through, do not boil. As sauce heats it will thicken.

Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Combine 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup cornstarch. Stir until cornstarch is dissolved. Add to raw chicken. Marinate 15 min.

Julienne peppers and green onions and stir fry in large pot in 2 Tbsp. of peanut oil. When peppers become al dente, turn off heat.

Dredge marinated chicken in remaining cornstarch and fry in a deep pan with peanut oil. Drain chicken and add to peppers. When all chicken is fried pour sauce over and stir to coat chicken and vegetables. Let set 5 minutes to penetrate crust with sauce.
I know this is weird, but this is best if served with a huge baked potato. I grew up eating it like this and serve it this way with my family. My husband puts a spoonful of the sweet 'n sour on his potato.
