Sweet & Sour Chicken

This Chinese dish is regularly found in Malaysian menus. The battered chicken and sedap sauce is the perfect combo, but you can leave out the chilli sauce if you prefer, because this is definitely a family favourite. The list of ingredients is long but after you’ve prepped it’ll only take a few minutes to cook and get it on the table.
