Sweet and Sour Chicken


Last week I was really wanting Chinese Food. I originally found this recipe here at My Happy Meals and knew that I wanted to try it.

It is wonderful! It is a new favorite at our house. It's not a quick meal, but really pretty simple to make, and did I already say that it is wonderful? It really is wonderful.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken
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.

Sauce:
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.

  2. Looks delicious...I hate sweet and sour chicken though, because I don't like the sweet-sour combo.
