Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour is a flavor profile I love. I made this using a whole chicken but you could use just breasts or all thighs, whatever you like best. I served this with a pea and carrot risotto but only because since moving I still haven’t unpacked all of the groceries and risotto was all I could find. I actually really liked the risotto with the chicken, the extra sauce just enhanced the risotto.
