Sweet-Sour Chicken Dippers Recipe

Meet the Cook: Since you can chop up all the ingredients the night before, this can be ready in about 30 minutes. So it's a great after-work dinner. You can also serve it as a snack or an appetizer...similar to chicken nuggets. I've even substituted quail for the chicken, and it was delicious. Next, I may try it with pork! -Kari Caven, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2012

My family loves this recipe. I normally add teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of soy sauce to the batter to give it a little more flavor. I also strain the sauce after it is made because my family doesn't like the chunks of vegetables in it. It is absolutely delicious!

Wonderful recipe. Tried in a frying pan and then a deep fryer and decided the only way to make these is using the deep fryer.

I have made this several times. The chicken batter is amazing! We've used the batter with shrimp as well with great results.
