Spicy Sweet & Sour Chicken...♥

Another tantalizing chicken dish from my kitchen! Feels so happy when I receive e-mails asking for more chicken recipes, as they know my passion for chicken dishes. But off late, I don't cook them much, can you believe that? Could be my taste bud is changing towards fishes. Anyhow, chicken is still my favourite ;)

I seldom cook ever since my finger injury last month. Right now I have no extra hand coz Hubby has left to  work in the US. It was a total fun when he was around, helping out and cooked for us. He's just so funny in the kitchen coz he'll be always doing some acts to make me laugh. And we talked alot while cooking (okey, it's me who talked more)!

Back to the chicken dish today. I need to cook something quick and easy, so that I don't have to use my finger much, remember it's still wired! Another week left for removal.

Come, let's peek at the recipe!
