As its name suggests, it is a food that manages to balance in an absolutely delicious way the sweet spices with the sour ones, its purpose being only one: to obtain sensory pleasure. So, arm yourself with the Wok and the necessary ingredients because this recipe must be tried immediately!

First cut the chicken breast into cubes. Then season with salt and pepper. It is set aside.

Sweet and sour sauce can be prepared at home from ¾ cup of sugar, 4 tablespoons of tomato sauce, cup of vinegar and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. All this is added in a bowl and mixed. But, if we want to save time and always have this delicious sauce at hand, we can buy it ready prepared from any hypermarket.

In a Wok pan, add oil and let it heat over the hot flame. Then add the vegetables, stirring the Wok continuously. Thus, the vegetables will be fried evenly over a high heat.

In the sauce left in the Wok pan from the vegetables, add the diced chicken. It will also be fried over a high heat, shaking the pan without stopping. When the chicken pieces are done, add back the already hardened vegetables. Now you can add the sweet and sour sauce, depending on the taste.

Chicken katsu with red, sweet and sour sauce

Ever since we met and then after we formed our little family, Lau and I have established a tradition in our home. We decorate the Christmas tree on the last Sunday of November.

True to the custom of the house, we did the same this year, the palette chosen for the fir tree being white, silver and very little red here and there.

I really like Christmas and I can say the same about all the winter holidays and the atmosphere they bring. That's why we decorate the tree faster. To enjoy those special moments for as long as possible.

Unfortunately, I haven't taken any pictures of the tree yet, but when I have them, I'll show them to you. I can say from now on that the Christmas tree is simple and elegant, rather than charming. And if it were up to me, I would give up all the globes and fill the Christmas tree with only lights. Many, many warm, white lights, which do not even flicker, do not play, do not go out only to light up again, but which remain motionless in the tree. Simply.

But until the pictures, let's better prepare chicken katsu together, a delicious Asian wonder.

Asian food & # 8230 I really like it. A lot of everything. Maybe it's because he comes from a world I don't know (yet). Maybe it's because it tickles my longing to see new worlds with other philosophies of life. With other stories.

Maybe I like it because it's exotic. And in a different way than we are used to in our corner of the world & # 8230

In this case & # 8230 If the chicken is simply transformed into a banal, crunchy schnitzel, wrapped in breadcrumbs, the star of the recipe is the sweet and sour sauce that is easy to prepare. But especially easy to enjoy.

Take the chicken breast and cut it into cubes. Then season the meat with salt, pepper and garlic, and put it in a hot pan with two tablespoons of oil. The chicken pieces are left to fry for about 8-10 minutes, until the meat becomes tender and acquires a golden color.

Also, for a stronger flavor, you can add to this recipe a few pineapple cubes, which will give the composition a much sweeter taste.

After you put a few tablespoons of oil in the pan, you can let the pan heat on the fire. Then add the vegetables, stirring constantly, for 5-10 minutes. Thus, the vegetables will be fried evenly and will retain their color and flavor.

Over the hardened vegetables, add the chicken, along with the sweet and sour sauce, depending on the taste. Then mix the ingredients until the whole composition is homogeneous.
