Sweet Sour Chicken With Cucumber

My own version of sweet and sour dish. I learned that when you add ketchup and light soy sauce to cook a dish , it taste yummy. The above is just another simple dish, a "what you can find in the fridge" dish.

Chicken thigh (debone) and cut in cube
(you can use chicken fillet or chicken breast too)
Cucumber - cut into bite size
A bit of carrots to make it look colorful
Chopped garlic
Sliced onions
Ketchup, soy sauce, salt, pepper, sugar - to taste
Vinegar / cider (optional)

Saute onions till soft. Add garlic and saute till fragrant. Add chickens, stir fry till chicken is cook. Add in carrots and cucumbers. As for the sauce, if you want it dry, don't add water. If you intend to pour over pasta, then cook with more sauce. In the end add a bit of corn starch diluted in water to make dish a bit shiny. It would taste a bit soury sweet. If you you want it to be more sour, add a bit of vinegar or cider.

My mouth is watery already. Thanks for reading and hope you like this dish as much as I do.
