How to make chicken sweet and sour sauce

Asian Sweet Chili Chicken is so crispy, sticky, sweet, slightly spicy and completely addicting you won’t even miss your favorite Asian takeout.

Asian Sweet Chili Chicken combines two of my favorite things about Asian cooking, tempura batter and sweet chili sauce. We love this Sweet Chili Sauce so much we keep 4 bottles of it on hand to make sure we don’t run out (our local store doesn’t carry it so I order it on Amazon or stock up when we head home for visits.

The batter of the chicken is your classic tempura batter which ensures it is a light crispy batter you won’t feel weighted down by. It is a mix of cornstarch and flour that you add ice water to (drain the ice out first). This means you’ll want to work fast because the colder that batter is the crispier it is going to be.

Another tip for making this dish as crispy and light as possible is cooking in a wok. I reference it a lot when it comes to Asian cooking because the high heat, quick cooking is the best way to get crispy small bites of proteins, like this Mongolian Beef I posted last week that resulted in tender bites of beef even with as thinly as they were sliced.

Sometimes I also swap out ice water for ice cold club soda. I know what you’re thinking, who has club soda around the house? Well, you probably don’t if you live near me because I think I single handedly keep the stores within 5 miles of me out of stock I love it so much. Carbonation without the added stuff of sodas.

Tools Used in the Making of this Asian Sweet Chili Chicken: Sweet Chili Sauce: Adds that sweet, glaze to the dish that you’ll have trouble replicating without quite a lot of work, this is at the heart of the dish. If you’re in a pinch use the Trader Joe’s brand, add a bit more than written of the crushed red peppers since the Trader Joe’s variety is not spicy at all. Wok: Great for high heat, quick cooking. This wok is a great addition to your kitchen if you love cooking Chinese food or stir fries in general. Large Frying Pan: I use this Cuisinart for most of my non cast iron cooking unless I am going with a stainless steel option, then I choose my All Clad.
