A picture is worth a thousand words they say. When I saw this one I knew I had to try it! Prior to owning a Thermomix I would have gone to the shops and browsed the shelves for something similar and cooked it out of a jar!
What I didn’t expect though when I made it, was it to be like an authentic sweet and sour sauce. So I was pleasantly surprised and I trust you will be too! ThermoFun Sweet and Sour Chicken for the win!
