Most of the Chinese meals are taken off the table in a low sodium diet, which can really blow because the Chinese food taste so, so good! This is recipe is the easiest of all the Chinese takeout foods, but don’t worry though there are definitely going to be more in the future. This recipe is very easy but can take more time because of you have to fry the chicken initially for that crispy feel

So how much sodium is in a Sweet and Sour Chicken dish?
After an intense online research we have concluded that for a typical takeout of Chinese sweet and sour chicken we have a sodium concentration of about 1750 mg.
Whereas if you cook it at home and follow the conventional recipes it could range somewhere between 800 mg to 1700 mg of sodium in each serving, which is definitely way more than recommended healthy limit. So you better remove Chinese take outs from your diet if you care about your heart. Sweet and sour chicken probably has the highest amount of sodium level as compared to other dishes.

We know what you are thinking now. How much sodium is in our recipe?
Our recipe for sweet and sour chicken with low sodium, the sodium levels barely touches 80 mg per serving. Yep, you read it right! That is a very low amount as compared to the whopping huge amounts of sodium in the restaurant made Chinese foods. In fact it is so low that you can easily decide which starch to serve with your sweet and sour chicken. Conventionally, sweet and sour chicken is served with noodles or rice. Both of these sides do not add significant amount of sodium in the serving because they are cooked with very little to no salt. So this is up to you to decide which side to serve, you can check the nutritional value of both and compare

Typical sodium amount per serving 800 – 1700+ mg

Sodium per serving for this recipe 78 mg

Before trying this recipe at home, I had only tried stir fry and not any other form of Chinese food. And because there are no more Chinese take outs for me because of the low sodium diet, I had to try and spice up my otherwise boring diet. Believe, I could not be more happy than how this tasted. I’m not sure about you but I will definitely keep using this recipe.

The best part is that you don’t even need a wok to prepare this. You can use a large sized skillet. But if you don’t have either of these you can simply use a pot with higher sides, which will save you from a lot of mess from the splashing.

If you don’t feel like spending an hour to fry chicken every time you want to make sweet and sour chicken, you can simply fry some chicken ahead of time and when you make this dish you can simply put the already fried chicken on a baking sheet and heat it up to 350oF for about 15 minutes in an oven and the chicken will be crisp as before and ready to use!

Usually when I’m frying chicken I fry only half of a chicken breast at a time. This keeps the pieces separated and does not cool down the oil too much and makes crispier chicken quicker.

And if you are using the trick I just told you about heating up the chicken in oven, you ought to use a large baking sheet so that you can put spread out the chicken across the sheet and they don’t overlap. This way all of the pieces will get even heat and all of the pieces taste the same.
