Emily is a Magnet senior who is extremely scared of pokes. She enjoys wasting her time watching Asian dramas, listening to Chinese music and reading novels late into the night. She loves to make her friends happy and doesn't mind when they laugh at her because she's too trusting (they call it gullible).

Enjoy some homemade sweet and sour chicken that tastes just as good as restaurant food!
Move around the chicken pieces so that they are covered in the sweet and sour sauce.
Stir the sauce to make sure the starch has also been spread around before adding in the fried chicken.
Make the sauce, consisting of oil, ketchup and sugar, in the heated pan but remember to add the starch too at the end because the starch will help the sauce stick to the chicken.
Once the chicken has turned the crispy golden-brown color, take it out on of the pot and place it aside to cool.
As each piece changes color, flip over the chicken so that each side is fried evenly.  Be careful of the sizzling oil!
Be sure to cover the chicken in wetted flour and starch before placing it into the pan to make sure that it will stick to the chicken.
The amount of oil needed will depend on the type of pan.  It may be healthier to use less oil and just flip the pieces of chicken over more often so that the sides are still fried evenly.
Once each piece has been covered, place it aside for later use.
Try to evenly cover each piece of chicken with the dry flour and starch.
Be sure you are using boneless chicken before beginning the marinating process.

Try not to spill any of the turnip when pouring it in.
