Sweet and Sour Chicken - Tara Giordano

We made this last night and it was so good and fairly easy. I got the recipe from www.mykitchencafe.blogspot.com

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

***We adapted a bit by using teriyaki sauce instead of soy sauce because we ran out but it was still very good. Also, next time I think I will cut down on the vinegar - maybe just a tad, bake the chicken without the sauce so it's more crunchy, and definitley make a double batch of sauce. Delicious!
