This is a great recipe for sweet and sour chicken!! It was fairly easy to make and tasted fantastic!!
John's Rating: 9Recipe from: Life as a Lofthouse

The chicken coating:

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
salt + pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oilLink

The sweet and sour sauce:

3/4 cup sugar
4 tbs ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt

Start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees. Rinse your chicken breasts in water and then cut into cubes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Dip chicken into the cornstarch to coat then dip into the eggs. Heat your 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet and cook your chicken until browned but not cooked through. Place the chicken in a 9x13 greased baking dish. Mix all of your sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a bowl with a whisk and then pour evenly over the chicken. Bake for one hour and during the baking process you will need to turn the chicken every 15 minutes.

I also made this recipe and used orange sauce instead of the sweet and sour and it was also really good.

Orange Sauce:
2 Tbsp Orange Juice concentrate
1 Tbsp orange rind, grated
1 Tbsp ginger, grated
3 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
3/4 cup water
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp dried onion
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 heaping Tbsp. cornstarch

Mix ingredients in VitaMix and pour over chicken in place of sweet and sour in recipe.
