Sweet and Sour Chicken

Source: Kitchen Cafe

I saw this on My Happy Meals, who saw it on...well, go to Molly's site if you want to see the trail! I had been craving sweet and sour chicken for awhile so I was so glad it came up! The only downside to this recipe is the prep time. After you cut up the chicken pieces, you have to dip each individual one in the egg, and then the flour. It takes awhile! But it was very tasty and I highly recommend it!

Sweet and Sour Chicken

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in cornstarch and then in egg. Fry in a little oil until brown but not cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish. Mix sauce ingredients (below) together and pour over chicken.

¾ cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
½ cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes. If you like extra sauce, make another batch of sauce and bring it to a boil on the stovetop. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.
