  1. Preheat the oven to 380F/190C. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Cut the chicken into large cubes and season with the salt and pepper. Dip the cubes of chicken into the beaten eggs and then into the panko breadcrumbs (ensure they are well coated).

  8. When the pepper softens and browns slightly, add the snow peas and cook for one minute.
  9. Add the chicken cubes and the sweet and sour sauce and continue to cook for two minutes, stirring until all of the ingredients are piping hot.
  10. Serve immediately while the chicken is still crispy.
