Sweet and Sour Chicken

Chinese food is my favorite and so being able to make some really good at home is something I am working on. I have found my new favorite Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe. The sauce is sweet with the perfect amount of tang and the chicken is crispy outside and moist and delicious inside. Its so good!

Sweet and Sour Chicken
Recipe Source:

4 Chicken Breasts
Salt & Pepper
1 1/2 cup Cornstarch
2 Eggs, beaten
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil

Sweet & Sour Sauce
1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
8 Tablespoons Ketchup
1 cup Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Rinse your chicken breasts in water and cut into cubes. Season with salt and pepper. 

2. Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a large skillet. Dip chicken into the cornstarch to coat then dip into the eggs and place in the hot oil. Cook your chicken until just browned, don't cook through.  Place the chicken in a greased 9x13 baking dish.

3. Whisk together all of the sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and pour evenly over the chicken. Bake for one hour. During the baking process you need to turn the chicken every 15 minutes.
