You could swap the vinegar
Don’t do any browning for freezer bags 🙂

I’m wanting to make this for freezer meals.
Could I use white wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar for this recipe?
Also do you need to coat them in flour and brown first or could I just chuck it all in raw without the flour?

This recipe is a Winner…. Easy prep, lovely tasty outcome and I found I didn’t need cornflour paste at end. Had a nice thick sauce to soak into the steamed rice. Definitely looking forward to playing with this recipe taking it sweeter or more savoury. Thanks for a great recipe paulene

Made this today, delicious, didn’t have hoisin sauce so use ketchup manus instead. Will make this again for sure.
