Ask any chicken lover, and they'll convince you why there should be a 'chicken version' of every dish in the world. If you happen to be a fellow chicken fan, you will also understand how every occasion, be it big or small, is incomplete for us without a few classic chicken dishes on the menu. From starters to mains, chicken can dominate almost every component of the meal, and yet we never seem to get enough of it (and we don't intend to either).
Health Benefits Of Chicken:
According to nutritionists and health experts, chicken is one of the best sources of animal protein as the fat content in it is negligible, as compared to red meat. Protein is beneficial for muscle growth, healthy weight, skin, hair and nails. It isn't for nothing that the nutrient is also called the building block of life. Another quality about chicken that we adore is that it is so easy to cook. It takes much less time to cook also as compared to something as heavy as lamb. Which is perhaps why, it is a preferred option for fast food across the world. Take anything hot, sizzling and saucy, throw in some chicken pieces- and you have a winner. This oriental-style sweet and sour chicken is a fine example.
Sweet And Sour Chicken Recipe:
To make this fabulous recipe, you first need to marinate the chicken with garlic and ginger paste, some corn flour along with soy sauce, egg and salt. Make sure you let the chicken rest with the marinade for at least an hour, so that all the pieces soak in the ingredients. Take some oil in wok, saute in some carrots, cabbage, onions, bell peppers and finally add some tomato juice to it bring to a slight boil. Next you are supposed to fry the chicken and add to the wok along with some stock and set to simmer. Garnish with coriander or spring onions and serve with rice.
Sounds like a cake walk, right? This delicious recipe is bursting with flavours that are so delightfully different from the fiery hot chicken appetisers we are so used to having.
