WHO HERE LIKES SWEET & SOUR CHICKEN?


This was SO good! Tastes just like what you get in
the Chinese restaurant except there is no MSG
unless you add it and it costs very little to make
with ingredients you probably already have in
the door of your fridge.

We like sweet and sour sauce, so next time 
I make this I will double the sauce recipe to
serve some sauce on the side.

I stir fried chopped cabbage, carrots,
cauliflower and broccoli lightly, sprinkled
a bit of soy sauce and some garlic with it
and served it on the side. We ate this with
white rice but fried rice would be very
good too. Delicious!




Sweet and Sour Chicken
-Makes 4 servings -

Chicken Ingredients
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions
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.

Sauce Ingredients
¾ cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
½ cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Directions
Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes. If 
you like extra sauce, make another batch of sauce and bring it to a 
boil on the stove top. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat 
until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.
