Easy to cook and delicious Best Kuluyuk Chicken Recipe.

We've carefully curated this recipe to ensure it embodies the essence of perfection. From the first bite to the last, you'll savor the rich, harmonious flavors that make Kuluyuk Chicken unforgettable. So, gather your ingredients, follow our easy steps, and indulge in the best Kuluyuk Chicken you've ever tasted. Kuluyuk Chicken (Sweet and Sour Chicken) is a dish that originates from China or Tiongkok (its mandarin name: Gu Lao Rou). In this dish, the chicken is fried first, then poured with sweet and sour sauce. The chicken part that is usually used is the boneless chicken breast because it is very easy to cut into small pieces. Before frying, the chicken breast pieces are marinated with several spices to add flavor to the chicken meat, and cornstarch to make the surface of the chicken meat thicker. When frying the Kuluyuk Chicken, make sure the chicken is submerged in oil. Also when removing chicken from the oil, make sure the chicken must be cooked and dried evenly. Tomato sauce and sugar are 2 ingredients that make the sauce taste sour and sweet, and can make the sauce thicken, which is the characteristic of the Kuluyuk Chicken sauce. For the strength of sweetness or sourness, it can be adjusted to our desired taste. When the sauce is poured over the chicken, it will become a bit mushy. But that's okay, this is precisely what makes people like this food (you can separate the sauce and chicken if you want). People love Kuluyuk Chicken because of the sweet and sour taste attached to the chicken meat. In general, Kuluyuk Chicken can be complemented with chopped carrots and red chilies, and eaten with warm rice.
