Fakeaway: Sweet N Sour chicken

Who’s missing having takeaways? This recipe is incredible simple and tastes even better than your local takeaway dish!

I love the simplicity of this dish, theres really no need for fancy ingredients to achieve amazing flavour. I was actually shocked dhoe good this dish turned out.

I think I mentioned in my Jambalaya recipe that I’ve been using frozen vegetables recently and I’ve done the same in this recipe. I used frozen diced onion and frozen mixed peppers. It makes this dish incredible easy and would highly recommend using frozen prepared vegetables.

A delicious healthy twist on a sweet and sour takeaway


  • 2 large chicken breasts

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

  • 80g white onion

  • 100g mixed peppers, sliced

  • 150g pineapple chunks

  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar

  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup

  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

  • Rice (to serve)


  • Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook your brown rice according to the packet instructions (this should take 20-25 minutes).
  • Heat the olive oil in a wok on a medium heat, then add the onion and pepper. Gently fry for 2-3 minutes then add the chicken breast chunks and cook for a further 5 minutes until chicken is almost cooked through.
  • Add the pineapple chunks, the ketchup, sweet chilli sauce and white wine vinegar and stir to combine. If you like it a little more saucier, add more sweet chilli and ketchup in even amounts. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce is hot.
  • Serve with the cooked rice (optional)
