Sweet and Sour Chicken

It doesn't matter if we go out for Thai or Chinese- Corey always picks a sweet and sour dish to add to our mix. Over the years at home I have tried different prepared sauces and homemade recipes-all just O.K. in his opinion. My latest trial has taken 1st Place! No need to try out any other recipes. Found on Mel's Kitchen Cafe web site. It's a keeper!!

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Sauce:
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. While the oil is heating, cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Place the cornstarch in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Put the chicken into the bag with the cornstarch and seal, tossing to coat the chicken. Whisk the eggs together in a shallow pie plate. Dip the cornstarch-coated chicken pieces in the egg and place them carefully in a single layer in the hot skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip each piece over to cook on the other side until nicely golden but not all the way cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish and repeat with the remaining chicken pieces.
  3. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour over the chicken in the baking dish. Bake for one hour, turning the chicken once or twice while cooking to coat evenly with sauce.  Serve over hot, steamed rice.
  4. **I added sauted onion, bell peppers, and pineapple
