Sweet and Sour Chicken Drumsticks

Here's one recipe to simply wolf down, with some steamed rice, or some plain noodles. The sweetness of the sugar and the sourness of the vinegar, humbly satisfies you.

Chicken Drumsticks - 6
Egg - 1
Cornflour - 4tbs
Salt and Pepper to taste
For the sauce
Onion- 1 small
Green Pepper - 1
Carrot - 1
Chicken stock - 2cups
Vinegar- 4tbs
Brown sugar - 4tbs
Sherry - 1tbs
Soya sauce - 1tbs
Oil for deep frying

Trim the drumsticks if  necessary. Beat the egg with 1tbs of water. Mix the cornflour with salt and pepper. Dip the drumsticks in egg, then in cornstarch and out to one side. Cut the onion into eights and the pepper and carrot into wedges. Drop these into a small pot of boiling water and cook for 5minutes. Drain well.
Mix together in a small saucepan the chicken stock, vinegar, sherry, soya sauce, brown sugar, corn flour. Bring to a boil and stirring constantly, simmer for 2-3minutes.
Heat oil in a skillet, fry the chicken drumsticks until golden and tender. Drain onto absorbent paper. Add the vegetables to the sauce and then the chicken, reheat for about 3minutes and serve hot.
