Sweet and Sour Chicken

I found a new cooking blog by way of my friend Katie's cooking blog. It's called My Kitchen Cafe. I made this tonight, and it was WONDERFUL!!! I definitely recommend making it. I know it seems like it will take forever since it has to be in the oven for an hour, but it didn't take long at all. The most difficult part was cooking the chicken in the skillet, it was quite messy, but other than that, it was totally worth the mess! I served this with brown rice, broccoli and I did make extra sauce. DELICIOUS!!



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.


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 stove top. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.

I heard about this blog from a friend, and I'm so glad I checked it out! I made this last night, and it was SOOO delicious! Since I got it started kind of late, I fried the chicken on the stove for a few extra minutes and then reduced the baking time to 35 minutes--it worked! And my almost 2-year-old son couldn't get enough of the Easy Fried Rice. Thank you for posting this recipe!
