I made the yummiest Sweet and Sour Chicken on Sunday! I thought I would share the recipe. I have a picture of the final result, but none of the process until I make it again...I was by myself and the whole breading process made it not reasonable to use a camera at the same time.

Anyway, to begin, here is what you need: 3-4 chicken breasts, 1 cup of corn starch, 2 eggs (beaten) salt and pepper. First you chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces, then salt and pepper for seasoning. Next you coat them in corn starch, then dredge in the eggs. Then into the frying pan with a little bit of oil. If you aren't careful (which I wasn't) you will end up with a LOT of batter stuck to your fingers. If you have a non-stick pan you can get away with a smaller amount of oil here. All you are going to do is let them brown up a tiny bit, but not cook all the way through. Then, pull them out of the pan and put them in a baking dish.


Next we mix up the sauce. In a small bowl combine 3/4 Cup of sugar, 4 Tablespoons of Ketchup, 1/2 Cup of vinegar ( I use rice vinegar) , 1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce, and 1 tsp of Garlic Salt. Then pour the sauce over the chicken bites and bake the whole thing at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

The result? Yummy!
