Chinese Sweet & Sour Chicken {TWC #86 Linky Party - International Foods}

(International Foods)

My plan for today was to step out and make some home made Egg Rolls, that's about as International as I can stretch, but time got away. And well there are my two FAVORITE International Foods to pick from Mexican or Italian, I LOVE them both very very much and make them very often. But, I did have this one recipe stored away that I made and my whole family LOVED, Sweet and Sour Chicken. Kinda like the chicken at those fast food Chinese places, my 13 year old son told me it just wasn't the same, but we all thought it was SO MUCH better. I will be making this AGAIN soon!

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken
recipe found at Six Sisters Stuff, recipe originally from Mel's Kitchen Cafe

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
salt & pepper, to taste
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Sweet and Sour Sauce:
3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse your chicken breasts in water and then cut into cubes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the cornstarch in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Put the chicken into the bag with the cornstarch and seal, tossing to coat the chicken, then dip into the eggs.

Heat your 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet and cook your chicken until browned but not cooked through. Place the chicken in a 9x13 greased baking dish. Mix all of your sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a bowl with a whisk and then pour evenly over the chicken. Bake for one hour and during the baking process you will need to turn the chicken once or twice about every 15 minutes. This chicken is delicious and will for sure be made again in my house.
