Sweet and Sour Chicken

This recipe is delicious. It tastes a lot like the chicken you get in Chinese restaurants. It is a little time consuming, but totally worth it. You can adjust the amount just by adding more chicken and doubling the sauce.

4 - 8 skinned, boned chicken breast halves
1 egg, beaten
sauce - recipe follows

1. Cut the chicken into strips.
2. Dip the chicken pieces into the egg, then roll them in the cornstarch.
3. In a small amount of oil, fry the chicken until just browned.
4. Place the chicken in a shallow baking pan, pour the sauce over it, then bake uncovered at 325 degrees for one hour, turning the chicken every 15 minutes.


3/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together.

I always triple the sauce for a 9 x 13 pan of chicken. It feeds my family of eight and we usually have enough left over for me to have lunch the next day. And, I always serve it with rice. The sauce is really yummy with rice.
