Sweet and Sour Chicken

This is absolutely the best Sweet & Sour
Chicken I've had in a long time..... My family
was raving about it as well when we had it for dinner
last night. This is on my Top 15 of All Time -
Favorites...I hope you'll give it a try and see if
it'll be one of yours....

This recipe is from The Kitchen Cafe.....The only
thing is that I had a little trouble when I dipped
the chicken pieces into the cornstarch, then into
the egg mixture, then into the frying pan.....I
managed to make somewhat of a mess.....especially
with the cornstarch/egg mixture.

That being said.......it was worth it....The smell
coming from the oven reminded me of Panda
Express... It was heavenly......I know Rachel Ray
is always saying she wishes her TV audience
watching could have smellavision....I wish
you could have that too.

Note:(I think the best tasting chicken is @ Vons...
when I try others I'm disappointed with the flavor.
It's a 4 lb. bag in the Meat section of the market and
it's called "Young Boneless/Skinless ice glazed
chicken" (and it's frozen) I was able to make this meal,
as well as dinner for another night (Malibu Chicken
w/mustard sauce.....It's my take of Sizzler's Malibu
Chicken which I will post another day in the near
future) The chicken breasts were huge and there
were a lot of them. I think it was a good value....

RECIPE
For the chicken:
3-4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
Salt & Pepper
1 c. cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. canola oil (I didn't use that much I used a few
shakes from my oil decanter......I cannot
think of what its called..Does anyone
know the name of this kind of oil bottle???

Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Season
with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in cornstarch and
then in egg. Fry in a little oil until brown but not
cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking
dish. Mix sauce ingredients (below) together and
pour over chicken.

Sauce:
3/4 c. sugar
4 Tbsp. ketchup
1/2 c. vinegar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. garlic salt

Bake for 1 hour at 325F. Turn chicken every
15 min. If you like extra sauce, make another batch
of sauce and bring to boil on stove top. Stir constantly
and let cook over medium heat until thickened
and reduced...(about 6-8 min)

(The sauce is so great you probably will want
that extra batch)
