Sweet and sour chicken is a classic dish – so here’s an easy way to make it.

It includes plenty of protein and veg.


  • 9 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 3 tbsp malt vinegar
  • 4 tbsp dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 4 skinless and boneless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 red peppers, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 227g drained can pineapple pieces in juice (optional)
  • 100g sugar snap peas, roughly sliced
  • handful salted, roasted cashew nuts, optional



  • In a large microwaveable dish, mix the ketchup, vinegar, sugar and garlic thoroughly with the chicken, onion and peppers. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 8-10 mins until the chicken is starting to cook and the sauce is sizzling.
  • Stir in the optional pineapple pieces and sugar snap peas and return to the microwave for another 3-5 mins until the chicken is completely cooked. Leave to stand for a few minutes, then stir in the cashews, if using, and serve.
