Amazing Sweet and Sour Chicken

 This is a great recipe for Sweet and Sour Chicken. It is gooey and sticky and crispy all at the same time.

very easy to make, take three whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cube
roll in cornstarch and dip in beaten egg, fry in vegetable oil.
fry all chicken until brown (doesn't need to be cooked all the way through, will finish in the oven)
Pour sweet and sour sauce all over chicken and put in the oven, bake for 1 hour turning chicken over every 15 minutes. The last 1/2 hour it gets sticky and gooey.
Very good with plain white rice, now for the recipe!
Sweet and Sour Chicken
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in cubes
1 cup of cornstarch
2 beaten eggs
salt and pepper
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup of sugar
4 tablespoons of ketchup
1/2 cup of vinegar
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
mix all ingredients for sauce in bowl and set aside.
Dip chicken in cornstarch and then egg and fry until brown. This is messy but worth it. Place all chicken in baking dish in single layer and spoon sauce all over, (will seem to wet, but it evaporates) bake at 325 oven for 1 hour, turning chicken every 15 minutes.
If so desired you can hold back 1/2 cup of the sauce and make an additionl topping for the chicken or rice. add 1 tsp. cornstarch to the sauce and cook over medium heat until thick. you can spoon over rice or chicken.
Cheers to Happy !
