I have a sweet tooth and I love sweet dishes  but sweet and sour chicken is really unique but you will love it.I first had this dish during my trip in Hongkong and it was prepared with pork.The pork pieces were tender ,sweet and delicious ,though I would have loved it a little more spicy but Cantonese dishes are loved the way they are originally, mild spicy retaining the flavors of the meat.you can reduce the sugar in this dish if you want,but caramelized sugar is necessary in this dish to give that stickiness and  shine to the  pineapple sauce.
