Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken
1 orange
1 lemon
2c water
Cut fruit in half, place everything in a medium saucepan and boil for 5 minutes. Take out fruit and add in
2/3c sugar
1tsp red food coloring (optional)
3 1/2 Tbsp vinegar
Boil for 2 minutes. Meanwhile make a slurry with 2Tbsp cornstarch and 2-3tsp water. Pour into sauce and let thicken for a minute. Take off and use as the sauce for your chicken tempura.
To make chicken tempura, buy a box of tempura coating (in the Asian aisle). I usually use half a package for our family of 5. Mix it with COLD water until just combined. I think I use between 1/2-1c water. Add more if too thick. Dip 1" cubed chicken pieces into tempura and deep fry for 4-5 minutes. Serve with ham fried rice.
