Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Make the sweet & sour sauce by whisking together the pineapple juice, tomato ketchup, malt vinegar and cornflour. There should be 300ml – add water or stock if you’re short.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok over a high heat. Add the onion, chilli, peppers, carrots and chicken and stir-fry for 3-5 mins until the vegetables are starting to soften and the chicken is almost cooked.

  • STEP 3

    Add the corn, pineapple and sauce. Bubble for 2 mins, add tomatoes and cook for 2 mins until the sauce thickens, the chicken is cooked and the vegetables are tender. Serve with rice, if you like.
