This is the best Sweet and Sour Chicken I have EVER made! The chicken had a crisp outside and the inside was so tender I did not even need a knife. The sauce was wonderful as well…. This is so good that I could see making this about once a month.
Rinse chicken, trim off fat or extras and then cut into 1 inch cubes. season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken into cornstarch and coat all the way and then into eggs. Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until browned. Place in baking dish. 3 chicken breasts can be in a 9×9 but 5 chicken breasts fits better in a 9×13.
3/4 cups sugar
4 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Whisk until smooth. Then pour evenly over chicken. Turn chicken so the sauce gets on both sides and then put in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. turn chicken and then cook for 15 more minutes.
The first thing you want to do is cut up your chicken into cubes about 1 inch in size.
Next you want to get the sauce ready. Put the sugar, garlic salt and ketchup in a bowl.
Add the soy sauce. I used a low sodium soy sauce.
Add the vinegar and whisk this up till smooth.
Look at what a pretty color the sauce is. Taste it and make any adjustments needed. You may want to add a little more of one or some of the ingredients.
The coating for the chicken only has two ingredients: cornstarch and beaten eggs.
Here comes the messy part. You want to dip your chicken in the cornstarch. Make sure to coat the chicken well.
Then dip the chicken into the egg.
Brown your chicken in the canola oil.
Make sure your chicken gets brown.
Put your cooked chicken in a baking dish.
Pour your sauce over the chicken and make sure to coat all pieces. Bake 15 minutes and then turn the chicken in the sauce and bake 15 minutes more.
Look how wonderful this looks!! Can you smell it 🙂
