Vegan Sweet and Sour Popcorn Chicken

Vegan Sweet and Sour…. Popcorn Chick’n? Yep! A twist on a Chinese classic! I used Vegan Fried Chick’n’s Popcorn Chick’n for this recipe and it turned out AMAZING. You could definitely make the sauce and use it to coat deep fried tofu or other vegan proteins too, my advice would definitely be to choose something deep fried!
