Sweet and Sour Chicken

I want to try something new and post a recipe every now and then. One thing I do enjoy is cooking. I don’t know too many people who don’t like to eat! My recipe blogs are NOT going to be filled with pictures. They are NOT necessarily going to be healthy. One thing is for sure, they WILL be tasty (and fairly quick)! So here’s your first one to enjoy.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

(loosely adapted from Made it. Ate it. Loved it. with a few of my own perk ups!)

  • 3-5 Chicken Breasts
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Powdered Ginger
  • Garlic Powder
  • 1 Cup of Cornstarch (more if you use more than 5 chicken breasts)
  • 2 Eggs Beaten (more if you use more than 5 chicken breast)
  • 1/3 Cup Canola oil

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Begin to heat oil in a large skillet. Cube chicken in to bite size pieces. Beat 2 eggs in a large bowl, big enough to dip chicken pieces in. Mix corn starch, with dashes/generous sprinkles (we don’t get to technical here) salt, pepper, powdered ginger and garlic powder. Put in a bowl large enough to dredge the chicken pieces in. Dip the bite size chicken pieces in to the eggs, followed by the corn starch mixture. Place in to pan of hot oil. Brown and drain. Chicken does not need to be cooked thru. After draining place in a 9×13 pan.

Sauce Mixture:

 

  • 3/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 4 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1/2 Cup White Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp Powdered Ginger

Whisk until smooth and pour over chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for a half hour. Stir part way thru to ensure good sauce coverage. Serve over rice or on its own.

I’ve also made this recipe then put it in the crock pot on low instead of in the oven and have had equally as scrumptious results. I just put it on low for about 3 hours.

Hope you enjoy!!!
