Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

This morning I was looking on Pinterest and a recipe for Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken caught my eye.  You can see the original recipe on Life as a Lofthouse.  I knew I had just about everything to make this and had to sub a few things.

Chicken and coating:

3 or 4 boneless chicken breasts
kosher salt and fresh black pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Sweet & Sour Sauce:

3/4 cup sugar
4 tbs ketchup
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder

Preheat your oven to 325.

Cut the chicken breast into bite size cubes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Create a breading station by putting the cornstarch in a bowl and the beaten eggs in another.  I like to do this on the stove top.

In a large skillet heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.

Place a few pieces of chicken in the corn starch then shake off the excess and dredge in the egg.  Immediately put them in the hot oil.  Brown on all sides, but do not cook through.  Place the browned chicken into a 13x9 baking dish and continue browning the other pieces of chicken until done.


Mix the Sweet and Sour Sauce in a bowl and then pour over browned chicken.

Bake for one hours, turning the chicken every 15 minutes.  This step is very important if you want crispy chicken.

Serve with rice or fried rice.
