Sweet and Sour Chicken

I love Sweet and Sour chicken. This is a great and easy meal that I can make with everything I have on hand at home without having to find a Chinese restaurant that makes it the way I like it. Melskitchencafe.com has been a great resource for delicious recipes, and she has a yummy version of this dish, which I have slightly adapted.

Sweet and Sour Chicken


2 Chicken breasts, cut into chunks

2 eggs

1/2 C. cornstarch

salt and pepper to taste

Canola oil for frying


3/4 C. sugar

1/2 C. white distilled vinegar

4 Tbs. ketchup

1 Tbs. soy sauce

1 tsp. garlic powder

  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken to taste.
  • Dip chicken pieces into the cornstarch and then the eggs.
  • Put chicken into hot oil and cook until the outsides are brown, not fully cooking the chicken.
  • Place browned chicken in a casserole dish.
  • Mix ingredients for the sauce together and pour over the chicken.
  • Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to make sure sauce is evenly coating the chicken.
  • Serve over white rice.
