This is a play on my normal stir fry (yeah Kikoman) and I tweaked the fried rice from last time http://therecipecritic.com/2013/08/easy-fried-rice/#_a5y_p=1068858. Thhe change I made was to replace frozen peas and carrots with fresh carrots. It worked and was good. Note that for the rice, day old rice is the best.
We start with prepping… For the rice, chop 1 medium white onion, peel and dice 4 carrots (I cooked them in the microwave thing for 30 sec just to soften them a bit, but probably wasn’t necessary), whisk up 2 eggs in a small bowl, and chop 1 bunch of green onions. For the Sweet & Sour Chicken, cut the chicken to bite size pieces, cut 1 onion into chunks, cut 2 bell peppers (1 red and 1 green is what I used, but any color works), and cut up some baby corns.
Start by heating 1-2 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet or wok (skillet #1). Add the chicken and cook mostly through. Remove to a bowl and set aside. Heat 1 tbsp in a different large skillet (skillet #2) over medium high heat and add the chopped onion and carrots. Sautee a few minutes till they are softened. While that gets started, add 1 tbsp olive oil to the skillet #1 and heat over medium heat. Add the chunks of onion and bell peppers and sautee till softened (about the same time it takes to make the rice).
By now the onions and carrots should be soft enough. Pull them all to one side of the skillet and pour the eggs in the ther side. Scramble them up till they are cooked through, them mix them with the veggies. Add the rice and about 3 tbsp low sodium sou sauce (I use a lot more because I like it, so just go for it the way you feel). Stir in the rice and soy sauce with the veggies and egg. Till mixed well.
Now finish the chicken. Add the chicken to the veggies in skillet #1, then pour in the Kikoman Sweet & Sour sauce. Stir to combine. Once mixed well, add in the baby corns and some sliced water chestnuts. Stir to combine. Once heated through, it’s ready to serve.
Spoon it up with the sweet and sour chicken either on the top of, or next to the fried rice. Enjoy!
