So I tried my hand at making Sweet and Sour Chicken, which I've tried before we moderate success (though it did get very very soggy the next day). And as an impromptu "what the hey" I also threw in homemade eggrolls, because heck, I'm tired of paying $8 for 10 frozen ones. I ended up settling on this recipe with a few modifications (mainly that they were incredibly meaty and they needed more vegetables).
The chicken is very straightforward (also I forgot to take a lot of photos); probably my least favorite part about this recipe is how "clumpy" the sweet and sour sauce gets when it cools. It's kinda like a very loose gelatin. I added garlic and black pepper to the batter (because I'm a garlic kind of girl - seriously, there's no threat of vampires around here), then deep fried those bad boys to a beautiful golden brown. On a random note, I'd forgotten how much deep frying makes you feel like you're walking around in a cloud of grease afterwards.
Here we are frying... I just put some oil in the bottom of my skillet. I hate wasting stuff. Anyway, these didn't take long to cook at all. And they smell divine.
