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.

Ingredients:
Chicken that has been sitting for 1 hour with garlic salt sprinkled on it.
Cornstarch
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.
Place cooked chicken in a casserole dish. Pour Sweet- and Sour sauce over the chicken.
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!

I was just thinking about you Sondra as we made up Chicken and Wild Rice Soup last night for dinner. I really can't believe how good that soup is. Tracy commented on why don't we make it more often.

I have spied this cookbook several times while in Seagull and Deseret Book, but haven't been able to bring myself to buy this. I have been in a "no spending" mode.

All I can say is YUMMY!! This reminds me of Sweet and Sour Chicken that you get at a Chinese Restaurant only better. I think I just found the recipe that I am going to make Jade for his birthday dinner. He LOVES Sweet and Sour Chicken, but I have never made a recipe like this. It looks absolutely delicious your plate all fixed up perfect with the veggies and rice.

Kado's comment cracked me up about the raw chicken. Yes, we mom's have to deal with lots of "scary things" to take ingredients and put them into something edible for dinner. Dealing with raw meat is part of the life of being a homemaker. I have often wondered what people think when they see raw meat on my Blog, especially when I showed how to grid chicken breasts into ground chicken.

Thanks for your friendship and I hope you are having a GREAT day!!

be cautious with copyright when doing these. I'm not sure what the front of the book says and what it allows.

I wouldn't delete it because it is a beautiful post. Maybe but an edit and then when you publish your blog you have it, and you have given credit for it. Just check into to it. The other thing I sometimes to since I like to play in the kitchen is if you do something that is unique to me then it is good to go.

Read the copyright in the book since I don't have it. It might give you some tips.
