Chinese Sweet Chicken

This is a simple way to prepare chicken, or any meat really, like pork, beef, or even fish and tofu. The sauce is what makes the dish delicious. It is sweet, sour, spicy, salty, all kind of flavors mingle together to gently coat the lightly pan fried protein of your choice. Sometimes, I make double or triple batches of the sauce and prepare different quick meals for several days 🙂
