This is a very popular side dish, apart from the chicken curry that is had all year around along with rice. It also goes well with any fried rice. It is the most favoured dish in all hawker centres across the country.
It is generally crispy fried chicken strips cooked with bell peppers in a sweet and sour sauce. Very easy and simple to make, it hardly takes any time to dish out this delicacy when time is a constraint.
