I love sweet and sour chicken but it is always done as a stir fry. So, challenging the norm, I decided to make sweet and sour chicken skewers. Here, slices of chicken are marinated with spices then skewered with alternating chunks of pineapple, peppers and onions. Whether the chicken is then baked, grilled or barbecued on a summer’s day, you must dip it into this delicious homemade sweet and sour sauce. The recipe may look lengthy, but it’s not difficult, and you can always compromise and go for ready-made sweet and sour dipping sauce if you don’t have time to make your own.
