Sweet & Sour Chicken

I first spotted this on Jen's blog...which led me to Ashley's Blog and she apparently got it from Kitchen Cafe. PHEW! Anyway, it looked so good and I had all the ingredients, double bonus. Oh and it tasted delicious....TRIPLE bonus! It's not the fastest dinner, but the prep time doesn't take all that long. Either way, it's worth it. I made some white rice and mini egg rolls to go along with it. And thank goodness for leftovers...I'm going to want this again tomorrow! I'm anxious to make this when Carl is home and can enjoy 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.


  1. Mmmm...this looks great and easy. I'm making this this weekend!

  2. OMG YAY!!! It looks fantastic...wasnt it SOOOOO good!!!??? I want to make it again soon ;)

  3. you updated!! this looks delish.. mmm..

  4. This may a dumb question, but I don't use vinegar like ever. So what type did you use for this recipe? Apple cider or white??

  5. I just used plain white distilled vinegar because that's what I had. I wouldn't use apple cider...just a plain vinegar.
