sweet and sour chicken

sweet n' sour chicken. super easy, super delish!

found it in my recipe binder (which i reorganized today, thankyaverymuch) and it says it's from a 1991 friends magazine, so there ya go. easy enough for primary kids, easy enough for me, i always say.

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.

***i was a rebel and baked it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, turning once and adding pineapple after 15 min. i needed it to finish at the same time as the rice...turned out great!
