Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 eggs
2 tsp. salt
1 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Vegetable oil

1 c. sugar
1 c. white vinegar
1 c. water
4 Tbsp. ketchup
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350. Combine eggs and salt in a shallow dish and set aside. In another shallow dish combine flour and garlic powder; set aside.

Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cut chicken into 1 1/2-2 inch bite sized pieces. Dip chicken in egg mixture then roll in flour mixture. Place in skillet and brown pieces. You don't need to cook them all the way through. Just until they get a little brown on the outside.

While the chicken in cooking, in a small saucepan combine all sauce ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 2-3 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat.

Spray a 9x13 inch dish with non stick cooking spray. When chicken is browned, place in baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken and lightly stir to cover all the pieces. Bake for 45 min. Serve over rice.


  1. I LOVE this recipe! It works GREAT for a big crowd. I usually add some veggies but other than that it is the perfect mix of tangy and sweet. Thank you for sharing.
