Hähnchen pan süß sauer – Asian, quick & delicious

When I left the air-conditioned airport building, I ran for the first time straight against a "wall". A wall of heat, high humidity, and smells that were new to me and hitherto totally foreign to. Bangkok, more specifically, Thailand was the first long-distance trip in an Asian country. The first country I have felt so right as the foreign, because really, everything was foreign to me.

Stranger than any other European or American countries, because so much of the unknown culture, Religion and people with different value systems. But of course, the food, the Art, especially where, namely, in food stalls on the street, was totally different. I will also never forget my first ice-cold coconut milk from the fridge. The is in almost every Restaurant there. Felt the coconut was just fall from the palm tree, a Straw been plugged in and BAM! The pure refreshment.


Although I won in Thailand, dear, I have not worn the Thai-Asian cuisine to home"". It was and is not easy to cook my way. The ingredients you required. However, there are some Asian dishes that I love very much and from which I made a Asian, German Kochmix. One of these dishes is my Asian chicken pan, sweet and sour, which would you locate more in China than in Thailand.


The Chinese have a broiler pan to prepare sweet and sour with a lot of red wine or Apple cider vinegar. For my taste, but very special and a bit too much acid. Therefore, I thought to myself, the juice of one lime provides also the acid in the sweet sour chicken pan, though not comparable to the intense. So if You want a little more acid in my chicken pan, sweet and sour, then a tablespoon of red wine vinegar or Apple cider try to add vinegar in step 9 for the sauce. But in between, always nice to taste and bear in mind that by Heating the vinegar even more intense ? is .


When you roast the marinated chicken meat, You should make sure that You give sufficient vegetable oil in the pan, so about 0.3 to 0.5 cm high, it should be. The meat does not need to swim in it "" but by the sufficient amount of Oil it can roasting nicely and the breading made of corn starch a Chance to become crispy. If too little Oil is in the pan, then the batter sticks to the pan bottom and separates from the meat.

The ideal side dish for Asian chicken skillet is a fragrant Basmati rice. A perfect Duo!
