I made this last night with my kids and they were begging for more. This was the best Chinese Food I have made at home and it will definitely be a staple moving forward. I got the recipe from Six Sisters but the orignal just asked for way too much sugar and fat so I lightened it right up and there was no complaints!
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 2 eggs, beaten
- canola oil spray
Sweet and Sour Sauce:
- 1/2 granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoons ketchup
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper. Place cornstarch and beaten eggs in separate bowls. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture. Heat oil spray in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned. Place the chicken in a 9 x 13 greased baking dish. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, ketchup, vinegars, soy sauce and garlic salt. Pour over chicken and bake for one hour. Turning every 15 minutes or so.
Initially I didn’t think I would have to bake the chicken for so long but you do so the sauce can really be soaked into the chicken.
Serve with rice or noodles and a side vegetable.
So good. Make it for dinner tonight!
