Sweet Sour Chicken Strip

Creating a brand-new theme for my blog has given me a strong will to write up new post as often as possible, hehehe... any comment? does it look better and fresh?

Today's blog will be covered by the tempting topic of Sweet Sour Chicken Strip. For a healthier option, i pan-fried the chicken strip rather than chunks every pieces of chicken into a deep frying oil. Well for me, i will feel guilty whenever i have munched on fried food, oh...fatness, cholesterol!! Too exaggerating? Haha... I am that kind of person. Sometimes i will go for oily food, but, once in a while! 

All you need is patience to cook this dish, small heat is required in this cooking process, we don't want a medium-rare chicken - 3 minutes on each side. Somemore, be ready to not clean your kitchen floor before cooking this dish, ticks for oily floor :p
