Having din din with family tomorrow and I've been asked to find something to have with sweet and sour chicken....I have no idea on this one. Any suggestions?

Can't think of a thing. Good sweet and sour sauce contains a good bit of vinegar. Not your most red wine friendly ingredient in that kind of quantity.
Not every dish is made to go with wine. Berno's suggestions are your best bet if you insist.
Me.........I'd have a nice beer.

OK, for the dinner I decided to bring two wines, both a red and white. For the white I brought an affordable Cotes du Rhone 2004 E. Guigal which was a nice match and despite the wine being just OK, the oak and low acidity matched the sweet and sour chicken marmalade topping well. Originally I wanted to bring a Beaujolais but decided to go with a 2002 Fonterutoli Chianti Classico which surprised me with it's tannic and almost Bordeaux style. Not what I expected but a very nice fashioned wine that clashed with the chicken, but that was probably due to the fact that 2002 wasn't a great year. In the end I think a nice fruity Cotes du Rhone would have fit the bill...
