Zoetzure chili kip

Sweet and sour chili chicken with broccoli, peppers and rice

This dish kind of feels like take out but without the price tag. Everything is so insanely expensive nowadays. The chicken is fried and mixed with a sauce based on chili sauce.

Sweet and sour chicken

You can buy the chili sauce, but you can also make it yourself. The recipe is in this article. This time is used storebought chili sauce because this dish was a last minute idea.


It's prefereble to add a lot of veggies to every dish, even though I don't always do that enough. This time though, I did! I used red peppers and broccoli but you can use whatever you have and need to use.


I'm not a fan of frying, I just don't like the idea of a potential burn risk, but I still do it because it's worth it. I used a regular high pot and poured a layer of sunflour oil in. After use you can let it cool off, pour it back in the bottle and throw it out. In The Netherlands at least, not sure how the rules abroad are.
