This recipe is inspired by the Sweet Fire Chicken from Panda Express. I think this recipe is even better than the original!
This dish is such a huge hit in my house. The key ingredient is the sweet chili sauce. I've found that Grama's Sweet Chili Sauce works the best.
Sweet Fire Chicken is great served over a bed of Jasmine Rice, as some of the sauce incorporates with the rice to make it delicious!
Any moisture makes the corn starch start to clump up, so don't leave the chicken pieces sitting in the corn starch for very long.
I really like using a lot of flour, as this makes for crispy chicken pieces. This approach is similar to making fried chicken.
I love extra bell peppers in this dish, so reduce to 1 bell pepper if they are not your favorite.
I think pineapple chunks come too large, so I like to cut them in half for this dish.
