1/3 Photos of Sweet and Sour Chicken (or Pork)
I learned this recipe from my mom and I still love it! While it does take some time to make, the outcome is just as good as take-out! You will need a Fry Daddy or a frying pan with oil in order to fry the meat. Put enough oil in the frying pan so that the meat can float to the top.

- 5Drain the fried chicken (or pork) and set aside, or place a cover over them to keep them warm.
