It’s funny what lockdown does to people… I’m obsessed with cleaning… I miss the gym hardcore and I’m craving things I don’t normally crave like Sweet and sour chicken.
So when Peperami.tv challenged me to create a fake-away using their Pep’d up Chicken bites… It was a no brainer. I had to make a Sweet & Sour Chicken Fakeaway. The easy answer would be to chuck the bites in a sweet and sour sauce. In reality, I was craving Hong Kong-style sweet and sour chicken with that crispy coating. But I could not figure out how to make it work.
I did not want the chicken to dry out as its already cooked…. Then it hit me to break the rules (on the packaging) and freeze the bites. So when you cook the chicken bits, the coating crisps up and the bites just heat through.
Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.
