Sweet and Sour Chicken

This has to be one of my all time favorite meals. I thought I may have made enough for some leftovers, but not when Jack decided to have four helpings of chicken. I had no complaints at dinner and absolutely love this meal!
I start off by cutting 3 chicken breast into bite size pieces. It may take a little longer but I think it is worth it. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place corn starch in a bowl and then beat the eggs in a bowl. Warm up the oil in a pan and when ready coat the chicken in the corn starch, followed by the egg then fry till browned on all sides, not cooking all the way through. Place chicken in a greased 9x13 pan.
While the chicken is frying make the sauce. The amounts listed below makes enough to pour sauce over the chicken as well as heat some up on the stove to serve along side the chicken. I love to dip each piece into the sauce for even more flavor!
Mix up the ingredients, sugar, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce and garlic powder and pour over the chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Serve with some fried rice and ENJOY!

  1. Well if Jack had four helpings of this, I would say that this was worth every bit of effort to make it. Very cute...the dish and the kid. I will try it...who doesn't love something like this?

  2. I LOVE sweet and sour chicken. I am going to try this asap.
