Recipe: Sweet and Sour Chicken
I thought I'd share a new recipe I tried and LOVE! It's Sweet and Sour Chicken. Yum!
Start out with 2 large chicken breasts
Cut chicken in pieces and sprinkle with garlic salt. Let sit one hour.
For the sweet-and-sour sauce here are the ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
Combine sugar, vinegar, ketchup, chicken broth, salt, and soy sauce. Microwave for 5 minutes, stirring mixture halfway through.
After an hour of waiting for the chicken to sit you'll need to cook it.
Chicken that has been sitting for 1 hour with garlic salt sprinkled on it.
1 egg, beaten with 1 Tablespoon water
(I had to make another egg to finish all the chicken - so I used 2 eggs + 2 Tbsp water-)
I put Crisco in my electric frying pan - about a cup.
I turned up the electric fry pan to 400 degrees. I'm sure you could deep fry it - but this worked for me.
Dip in cornstarch.
Then in beaten egg.
Fry in hot oil until brown.
It was quite a job to coat the chicken and turn pieces and watching so they don't burn.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, until the sauce is thickened.
I didn't get a picture of the pan all cooked. But, here is our dinner. I made stir fry vegetables over white rice, Fried rice and our Little Pink Chicken.
Ohhhhhh it was delicious. We loved it! Yum!
